Los #talibanes avanzan en #Afganistán 🇦🇫 y ya han tomado más de una cuarta parte de las capitales provinciales de Afganistán en menos de una semana.
Miembros de los talibanes patrullan la ciudad afgana de #Farah en el oeste del país. (Vía @AFP)
Esto ocurre mientras el presidente @JoeBiden ha ordenado que las tropas de #USA 🇺🇸 se retiren de #Afganistán 🇦🇫 lo que ya viene sucediendo, al igual que tropas de otros países.

¿Qué antes de finalizar agosto sucedería ésto?
Fue un análisis en un artículo... 🤔
Si, recuerdo haber analizado el “caso Afganistán 🇦🇫”, en medio de una nota por el incidente de Gran Bretaña 🇬🇧 con Rusia 🇷🇺 que escribí por junio 28:

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.

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.

@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 ...
