Afghanistan: Military situation in Baghlan province
Tuesday, 22 June 2021 - 11:46
- The headquarters of the security forces have been captured by the Taliban and clashes between the Taliban and government forces continue in Baghlan-e Markazi city
- The Taliban have seized an Army checkpoint on the outskirts of Cheshmeh Shir.
In this axis, the Taliban has concentrated its pressure in the northern direction of Pol-e Khomri, and considering the fall of Doshi district in the southern direction of Pol-e Khomri city, it can be said that the capital of Baghlan province is under siege by the Taliban. Thus, it will not be difficult for the Taliban to capture the city of Baghlan-e Markazi unless immediate military aid arrives in Pol-e Khomri area.
- The Taliban have claimed control of Nahrain district in Baghlan province.
- The Afghan Ministry of Defense announced the recapture of Doshi district in the south of Pol-e Khomri city. Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid denied the Afghan MOD claim.
