KABUL, Dec 4, (Asia Free Press) Afghan security forces, in a routine inspection in the eastern Panjshir province, have discovered and seized a variety of weapons, according to media reports.
During several military operations, security forces of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan have collected 74 rounds of different types of weapons in Abshar district of Panjshir province, reported China’s agency Xinhua.
The seized weapons have been submitted to relevant departments for further checking of concerned weapons to become able for further use, the news agency added in a report.
Panjshir, with Bazarak as its provincial capital, 200 km north of Kabul, is the last province that witnessed isolated armed opposition against the Taliban-led administration after the takeover of Afghanistan by the Taliban in mid-August this year.
Although the Taliban-led caretaker government captured Panjshir in September, the opponents under former vice president Amrullah Saleh and Ahmad Massoud, the son of former anti-Taliban leader Ahmad Shah Massoud, occasionally speak of resistance in the valley province.
Panjshir is the province that was not ruled by the Taliban in its previous tenure back in 1996 when they captured Kabul for the very first time.
