Khaama Press News Agency quoting sources in Pansjhir province claimed that the Taliban ignored the agreement and had launched attacks on the resistance forces of this province.
The sources claimed that the attacks which were conducted in different locations were repelled and the Taliban fighters retreated but the latter have not commented on the issue yet.
In the meantime, people in Panjshir province complained against the absence of telephonic services. They say that the Taliban have blocked telecommunication services which have subjected them to bigger problems.
Panjshir province, 120 kilometres to the northeast of Kabul is the only province that is not under the Taliban’s control and the so-called anti-Taliban resistance led by Ahmad Massoud is claiming to be fighting the Taliban.
The son of slain Ahamd Shah Massoud had said that he is willing to negotiate with the Taliban but had warned of resistance in case the negotiations fail.
