ISWNews Analysis Group: Jalriz district in Maidan Wardak province fell to the Taliban after several days of fighting.

Clashes in Jalriz district have intensified since March 27, following the insecurity of the Maidan Shahr-Behsud road by the Taliban, and after that, the army operation in this district intensified on March 30.

The Taliban operation finally ended without result on April 1, until Taliban attacks intensified in recent days And army checkpoints in the Jalriz city fell, and Dareh Sanglakh, the army’s last stronghold in Jalriz, fell to the Taliban on May 20. The continuous Taliban attacks in Jalriz led to a complete retreat and the surrender of the army to the Taliban.

An unknown number of people were killed and wounded and more than 37 were captured after the fall of the last army positions in Jalriz. Also, 14 military vehicles, 6 tanks and 3 vehicles were looted by the Taliban.

The fall of Jalriz by the Taliban is sounding the alarm in the districts of Maidan Shahr (the capital of Maidan Wardak province), Daimirdad, Hesa Awal Behsud And given the presence of Kochis (Kochi tribes allied with the Taliban) in the ranks of the Taliban, this danger will be more on the Shiites and the Hazara people in the these areas.

Earlier, the popular mobilization forces under Abdul Ghani Alipour stopped the Taliban around Behsud and prevented the transfer of clashes to other areas, including Bamyan province, but now with the removal of the Alipour forces by government forces under Ashraf Ghani, the danger of falling these areas is felt more than ever.
