The Taliban have claimed that they have captured over Panjshir, but the region still faces a major crisis due to an acute shortage of resources after being cut off from rest of Afghanistan.
The families residing in Panjshir that managed to make their way to the capital Kabul warned that the people of the valley may be staring at a severe crisis of food shortage, with all resources to the region blocked.
All roads and communication have been blocked along with electricity and telecom services. Locals of the area say that the attacks and conflicts have been increasing and many residents have even fled to the mountains.
The Taliban claim to have taken over the hub of resistance forces which were being led by Ahmand Massoud and Amrullah Saleh.
Taliban is assuring people of the valley that there will be no discrimination against them, despite their being ethnically different from the Pashtuns.
