To disperse the gathering of people and break up the protests against Pakistan, the Taliban fired shots into the air. It has been reported that the Taliban has open fire on a group of protestors who were a part of the anti-Pakistan rally, and were travelling towards the ARG and Kabul Serene Hotel, where the Pakistan ISI director is residing currently.
The group of protestors, mostly consisting of burqa-clad women, was chanting against the Pakistan ISI, after which the Taliban open fire on the protesters. No casualties from the incident have been reported yet.
The angered mob was heard chanting slogans like ‘death to Pakistan’ and ‘azaadi, azaadi’ in the videos uploaded by the local media channels. In another video shared, a woman from Afghanistan said, “No one has the right to invade Panjshir, neither Pakistan nor Taliban.”
On Monday, the Taliban claimed that they have captured the valley of Panjshir after defeating the resistance forces from the area. The NRFA, on the other hand, has denied these claims.
