The militants of the radical Taliban movement occupied the city of Jalalabad without a fight – the last of the largest cities on the way to the capital of Afghanistan, Kabul, the Associated Press reports.
The Taliban posted photos online showing that they are in the office of the governor of the city.
“The Mujahideen also entered the police station in Jalalabad, the administrative center of Nangarhar province, and took control of important points. Government troops continue to surrender. The promotion continues,” a source in the radical movement said.
To date, the Taliban controls about 90 percent of the territory of Afghanistan, according to the Iranian Broadcasting Corporation IRIB.
On Sunday morning, a representative of the radical movement, Zabihullah Mujahid, said that the Taliban also entered the city of Maidanshahr – the capital of Wardak province, which is located 46 kilometers from Kabul.
According to Mujahid, the militants occupied the governor’s administration building, a police station, and the central prison there.
