Violence continues in the country

While the peace process in Afghanistan remains uncertain, violent clashes between security forces and the Taliban continue.

The Taliban took control of almost all provinces on the borders of Uzbekistan and Tajikistan in attacks in the last week of June.

The Taliban movement, which surrounded the Khairatan border gate, the most important trade route to Uzbekistan from two directions, concentrated on Ghazni province in the southwest.

 Continuing the advance in Afghanistan, the Taliban captured the Islamic Citadel on the country’s Iranian border on July 8 and the Spin Boldak border gates on the Pakistan border on July 14.

The pressure was increased by violent attacks in the provinces of Badakhshan, Al-Taher, Ghazni, Herat, Kandahar, and Badges.

According to information obtained from local officials, the Taliban control more than 160 out of 407 districts, including their centers.
