Slowly moving towards Kabul. The Taliban have seized Lashkargah, the capital of Helmand province, after taking control of the country’s second and third largest cities – Herat in the west and Kandahar in the south – in the past 24 hours. Hundreds of foreign soldiers were killed in Helmand during the nearly two-decade war.

The occupation of the southern region means the Taliban have taken control of the capitals of more than half of the 34 provinces. In such a situation, when the US is about to withdraw its last troops after a few weeks, the Taliban have captured more than two-thirds of the country’s territory. The Taliban are also advancing in Logar province, south of Kabul. He claimed to have captured the police headquarters in the provincial capital Puli-e Alim, as well as a nearby prison. The city is located about 80 km south of Kabul. Although Kabul is not directly under threat, losses and fighting elsewhere have further cemented the Taliban’s hold. The latest US military intelligence assessment suggests that Kabul could come under insurgent pressure within 30 days and the Taliban could gain full control of the country within a few months if the current stance continues. If the Taliban maintains this momentum, the Afghan government may be forced to retreat in the coming days and defend the capital and only a few other cities.
