First photos of graduates from "Military Academy of #Kabul".
In #Afghanistan after pol leaders fled & soldiers surrendered, #Taliban have talked about an inclusive national #army curently being reorganised. But what hardware/capabilities will they have

They have
-Millions of rounds of ammo
-10s of thousands of guns, radios other hardware
-1000s of MRAPs & Humvees
-Dozens of aircraft
-100s of technicians/operators

@AJEnglish had exclusive access to what #Taliban says is the beginning of its own #AirForce
Military analysts say much of the estimated $88 BILLION firepower built by US in its 20-yr #Afghan war is either obsolete/inoperable. The coalition destroyed large amounts of hardware on its way out.

Now some being rebuilt from scrap and spares.

Voy a intentar hacer un hilo de uno de los días más complicados que recuerdo en #Afganistan

1-La guerra llama a las puertas de Kabul tras una jornada que ha arrancado con la caída de Ghazni y culmina con la entrada de los talibanes en Herat y Kandahar
Foto @AFP
@AFP 2- El avance imparable de los talibanes, que se ha hecho con 11 capitales de provincia en una semana, ante un Ejército que apenas opone resistencia convierte a #Kabul en refugio improvisado para decenas de miles de civiles que escapan de los combates.
Foto @TOLOnews
@AFP @TOLOnews 3- Ghazni supone toda una amenaza por su cercanía a Kabul y porque permite a la insurgencia cortar la ruta principal entre la capital y Kandahar, pero el gran golpe moral de la jornada son Herat y Kandahar

Update #Afghanistan .
Wie es aussieht, stehen die #Taliban kurz davor, nun auch eine eigene Luftwaffe zu bekommen.
Im Flughafen vom kürzlich eroberten #Kundus sollen sie mehrere intakte Kampfhubschrauber der afghanischen Armee erbeutet haben.
Details im Thread👇
Im Video oben und hier auf dem Foto ist zu sehen, wie die #Taliban einen Mi-35 der afghanischen Armee begutachten.
Außer intakter Technik braucht es natürlich auch guter Piloten, um die Flugtechnik einsetzen zu können.
Auch hier scheint es aber für die Taliban gut zu laufen
(2/7) Image
Pro-Taliban-Medien melden, dass Piloten der afghanischen Armee zu den #Taliban übergelaufen sind.
Somit könnten die Mi-Kampfhubschrauber quasi sofort in Interessen der #Taliban eingesetzt werden.
Das wäre für die afghanischen Regierungssoldaten natürlich ein Supergau...

When USA and Nato invaded Afghanistan post 9|11 they then helped form a government made up from warlords and criminals who were the ones responsible for the damage and deaths of countless of people. All that aid went to the pockets of these warlords. Image
The people had lost trust in the corrupt government. It's no secret that large number of army and police recruits were drug addicts. The army still some very patriotic soldiers however it's the leadership and warlords which is corrupt.
The best solution here for the Afghan people is if there is a peace deal between the two parties and fighting stops. But I highly doubt that TB will push for that now that they have made such gains and will have the upper hand in the negotiation table. May Allah bring peace.

1/5 Today I met several #Afghans working in #Istanbul,sorting and collecting garbage.They arrived recently,via #Pakistan and #Iran,after dozens of days of walking. In Turkey, they hold no residence permits&live in constant fear for being arrested.They can’t even get a bus pass...
2/5 ...certainly no rental contract and they can’t enter many shops as this requires a passport-linked barcode these days due to Covid - which they can’t register for because they are “illegal”, they tell me. “Illegal”, a term usually attributed to an action, but to a human?
3/5 They have little happiness in Turkey, they say:no family around, minimum income, grieving the loss of friends&family members-yet they say that at least they were able to escape war.Their first act in our conversation was kindness: the offer of a plastic cup of Fanta.

Die Meldungen aus #Kunduz und aus ganz #Afghanistan sind bitter und tun sehr weh. Wir haben dort gemeinsam mit den Verbündeten gekämpft, Bundeswehrsoldaten sind in Afghanistan gestorben. 1/14
Die aktuelle Lage in #Afghanistan stellt die Frage nach dem „Warum“ noch drängender und geht einher mit dem Wunsch, die Taliban zu stoppen. 2/14
Wie sieht die Lage in #Afghanistan aus? Seit Jahren haben die Taliban ihren Einfluss trotz des internationalen Einsatzes schrittweise ausgebaut. 3/14

Catastrophic 72hrs for #Afghanistan, as the #Taliban capture 5 provincial capitals -- taking military bases, airports, emptying prisons etc.

The U.S. (then NATO) withdrawal is clearly an utter disaster, but that ship has sailed -- muted response from #Washington says everything.
#Taliban control in #Afghanistan:

Mid-April: 77 districts:
Early-August: 229 districts

Nearly 50% of provincial capitals are now under #Taliban threat.

(via @LongWarJournal) ImageImage
@LongWarJournal NEW -- Early reports emerging that the #Taliban may have just captured its 6th provincial capital in 4 days: #Aybak, in #Samangan.

Visual confirmation, the #Taliban captured the #Kunduz police HQ and probably most of the city.
Most police cars are still in their hangars, so partially German army-trained staff likely left without a fight.

@akk @bundeswehrInfo This gives a better picture of the police vehicles, seemingly all still in place without a single police man defending the station ...

In another great step by the #Afghan government, #ISKP have blocked cellular communication in districts of #Kunar. Under the threat of a "military" operation, #IS forces have threatened to block up comm towers.…
Now, here is the interesting part... the bulk of the story is about the #Taliban (#IEA) shutting down towers in #Helmand, but the military operation was still carried out against them.

So is the problem, #ISKP in #Kunar& #Nangarhar or the #Taliban (#IEA) in #Helmand, @VOANews?
And while this is going on in #Afghanistan, the #Afghan govt & media is focused on the #PashtunLongMarch2Lahore, where they have shown their full support to a manufactured movement.

Who was held responsible for the murder of #madrassa children in #Kunduz by #Afghan forces?
