Talibãs avançam, capturando as capitais provinciais

August 9, 2021 - Os talibãs aceleram o seu avanço no Afeganistão, capturando uma série de capitais provinciais numa ofensiva imparável quando as forças dos EUA e da NATO finalizam a sua retirada do país.

The sweep comes despite condemnations by the international community and warnings from the United Nations that a military victory and takeover by the Taliban would not be recognised. The Taliban have also not heeded appeals to return to the negotiating table and continue long-stalled peace talks with the Afghan government, AP said.

The country-wide Taliban offensive intensified as U.S. and NATO troops began to wrap up their withdrawal from Afghanistan this summer. With Taliban attacks increasing, Afghan security forces and government troops have retaliated with airstrikes aided by the United States. The fighting has also raised growing concerns about civilian casualties.
