Afghan Taliban in the verge of taking over yet another provincial capital in Afghanistan

*MPs from Baghlan on Wednesday said that the fragile security situation in Laghman has not improved despite military reinforcements being sent to the region to repel Taliban threats and restore normalcy to insecure areas. *

Meanwhile, members of Parliament’s internal security commission said that the fighting has reached the suburbs of the provincial capital Mehtarlam.

Some MPs meanwhile said that some parts of Jalga district in Laghman have fallen to the Taliban. They said that it is also a strategic route to supply the government forces with weapons and other necessary equipment in Nahrain district.

This comes a week after the Taliban launched attacks on some parts of Laghman including Alishing, Alingar and Mehtarlam districts.

“The central prison is now the frontline of fighting in Laghman,” said Laghman MP Mohammad Rafi Mamozai.
