Taliban Capture Jalalabad, Kabul

Officials claim that the Taliban took control of Afghanistan’s Jalalabad without a fight, leaving Kabul the final central city under government control.

The critical eastern city, which is also the capital of Nangarhar province, fell early on Sunday morning. Its fall followed the Taliban’s capture of the major northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif.

On Sunday, the armed organisation uploaded images of its men in the governor’s office in Jalalabad on the internet.

A legislator from the province, Abdullah Murad, told The Associated Press that the group seized Jalalabad after elders negotiated the government’s fall there.

Another Afghan official in Jalalabad told the media that no fighting had occurred in the city “because the governor has submitted to the Taliban.”

The officer continued, “Allowing the Taliban passage was the only option to save civilian lives.”
