However, Ahmad Massoud, leader of the resistance forces said that the Taliba`s news of the Panjshir conquest is false.
News of Panjshir conquests is circulating on Pakistani media. This is a lie. Conquering Panjshir will be my last day in Panjshir, inshallah.

The fight between two rivals started after they failed to agree on negotiation talks.
The Taliban took over Afghanistan after the US withdrew its troops.
However, around 100, 000 Afghans have left the country fearing the severe Islamic laws that the Taliban is about to implement.
