The below report about #foreign_fighters in the north of #AFG is mainly based on incorrect info from anonymous and irrelevant sources, and looks more like a propaganda paper against the #Taliban.
There are some obvious facts that don't need much inquiry: gandhara.rferl.org/amp/taliban-ta…
The issue of new weapons& equipment is very clear. In all AFG, now TB have control over weapons depots& a large number of new military vehicles, & it is not specific to the north or Tajikistani fighters.
No source confirmed to me, the deployment of Tajik fighters to border areas.
While the report quoted Tajik& Afghan sources saying at least 200 militants from Tajikistan are currently based along the border, the actual number of all FFs in the north is about 300 with Tajiks making less than 100 out of it (2nd large group after Uzbeks among Central Asians).
