India’s military presence in Afghanistan will not be good for them, the Taliban said

Afghanistan Crisis LIVE Updates: The Taliban on Friday captured four more provincial capitals in Afghanistan in a lightning offensive that brought them closer to Kabul, a few weeks before the United States will officially end its two-decade war. In the last 24 hours, the country’s second and third largest cities, Herat in the west and Kandahar in the south, have fallen to the rebels, as has the capital of the southern province of Helmand, where US, British and NATO forces fought some of the conflict’s bloodiest battles. Blitz through the southern heart of the Taliban means rebels now own half of Afghanistan’s 34 provincial capitals and control more than two-thirds of the country. The western-backed government in the capital Kabul still has a bit of provinces in the center and east as well as the northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif. The US military has estimated that Kabul could come under rebel pressure within 30 days and that the Taliban could cross the rest of the country within a few months.
