Some interesting reports coming out of #Afghanistan over the past few days:

- roughly 2,000 #Taliban suicide bombers have been moved to the #Iran|ian border since the end of May.
- #ISKP has also started moving their fighters to northern #Afghanistan, according to sources within an anti-#Taliban group. They are being moved to #Badakhshan, #Takhar and some others.

THREAD: Re-emergence of TTP in context of fall of Kabul

After the historical return of Afghan Taliban in Afghanistan in 2021, TTP has strengthened its influence and foothold in Afghanistan. To survive #Pakistan’s continuous military operations, #TTP relocated itself to…… Image

Bier-Affäre in Afghanistan - Untersuchungsausschuss klärt auf! Ein #Thread. (…)
Von vielen vergessen & trotzdem wichtig. Heute tagt im Bundestag seit Stunden wieder der #Untersuchungsausschuss zu #Afghanistan. Ich will Euch zwei Geschichten daraus erzählen. Eine lustige - und eine traurige. Erst die lustige. (…)
In #Afghanistan hatten die deutschen Soldaten zeitweise sehr, sehr, sehr viel Bier, Wein, Alkohol. 23.000 Liter. Dabei galt - formell - zunächst die Zwei-Dosen-Regelung: Zwei Dosen pro Soldat pro Tag. Jedenfalls theoretisch. Dann wurde das einem General zu viel. (…)

#Afghanistan | 🧵

1/ On the evening of Feb 8, at least several hundred people gathered at #Kabul International Airport after rumours circulated of flights to Turkey being arranged for Afghans to support the earthquake relief effort, with all visa requirements being waived. Image
2/ On Feb 19, the Taliban’s GDI released a video showing the ‘confession’ of two #Afghan satirists, Imran Ahmadzai and Sadullah Didan, who were accused of spreading the rumours of the flights to #Turkey, as well as anti-regime propaganda. Image
3/ AW found three posts by Ahmadzai on Feb 8, when the rush to the airport was underway, and he pretended to be among the crowds. All the posts generated a reasonable level of engagement but not at a level likely to have been a major catalyst to the rumours of flights to #Turkey.

Ve li ricordate, nell'agosto della vergogna occidentale, i tantissimi afghani che presero d'assalto l'aeroporto di #Kabul nella speranza di salire su un volo che li portasse lontano dall'incubo talebano?
E ve li ricordate i
giovani aggrappati alle ali degli aerei, perdere la vita pochi istanti dopo, nel tentativo disperato di acciuffare l'ultima possibile libertà?

Ebbene, qualcosa di simile è successo nuovamente ieri notte. Quelle che vedete correre a centinaia,
nell'oscurità di Kabul, sono persone dirette verso l'aeroporto della capitale. Ancora una volta alla ricerca di una via di fuga dall'#Afghanistan.
Si era infatti diffusa la voce secondo cui aerei turchi in procinto di rientrare in patria fossero pronti ad imbarcare

Ecco perché - anzi, per chi - è un dovere non dimenticare l'#Afghanistan.
Guardate questa bambina, ascoltate le sue parole, capirete che i #Talebani non sono interpreti di un "atteggiamento abbastanza distensivo", ma custodi del Male.
Inizia con una domanda: "È un peccato
essere una ragazza? I Talebani non ci lasciano andare a scuola. Ma le loro figlie studiano in altri paesi. Ci mancano le nostre maestre, la nostra penna, i nostri quaderni. Non vogliamo restare a casa e analfabeti. Vogliamo andare a scuola, studiare ed essere intelligenti".
Sono i bambini le principali vittime dell'oscurantismo talebano. Ieri il giornalista afghano @natiqmalikzada ha raccontato una storia straziante, quella di #MohammadWasim, un bambino di 8 anni residente nel villaggio di Khaniz, nel #Panjshir, la terra di

This great op-Ed reminded me of the story of the #ISK director of recruitment being caught in a night raid. He used to work in a directorate of agriculture in Nangrahar during republic days and had hosted me at his office a few time. I got to know that he had been detained 1/
A few months later I saw him walking around in my #Kabul office. Awkward about how to bring it up, over tea I hinted at the rumour of him being picked up in links with ISK and he told me the story. Muslimyar (Head of Senate) had sent someone to him to lease them gov arid land 2/
When he refused to break the law and give out the land, the person told him that he would regret it. The same night, a helicopter descended outside his house and the zero units put a bag over his head and flew him to Kabul 3/
