In Afghanistan, Taliban attack Herat, Kandahar and Lashkar Gah

Taliban militants are attacking the cities of Herat, Lashkar Gah and Kandahar, which the terrorists intend to make their temporary capital.

Taliban militants already control half of Afghanistan. About this with reference to the calculations of foreign observers informs Radio Liberty on Sunday, August 1.

The militants themselves claim that they already control 80% of the territory of Afghanistan.

At the moment they are part of Herat – the half-million administrative center of the province of the same name in Western Afghanistan. In addition, in the south of the country, militants are trying to seize control of Kandahar and Lashkar Gah.

At the same time, about 11 thousand families live in refugee camps in Kandahar. According to the BBC, citing the assessments of a member of the Afghan parliament, the threat of the Taliban seizure of the city is “quite real.” The MP says the Taliban intend to make Kandahar their temporary capital.

At the same time, if Kandahar falls, the Afghan government will lose control over five or six more provinces in the southwestern region.
