Several people, including children killed in celebratory firing by the Taliban in Kabul: Reports

Kabul: Several people, including children as young as 10 years, were reportedly killed and injured during a celebratory gun fire by the Taliban in Kabul, on Friday night, according to a local Afghan new agency Asvaka.

Heavy celebratory gunfire was heard across Kabul on Friday after the Taliban claimed that they have taken control of the Panjshir valley and defeated the National Resistance Front of Afghanistan (NRFA). In photos and videos shared on social media, people were seen taking their wounded relatives to the hospital.

“By the grace of Allah Almighty, we are in control of entire Afghanistan. The troublemakers have been defeated and Panjshir is now under our command,” Reuters quoted one Taliban commander as saying.

However, Ahmad Massoud, leader of the resistance forces in Panjshir, said that the news of the Panshir conquest was false. “News of Panjshir conquests is circulating on Pakistani media. This is a lie. Conquering Panjshir will be my last day in Panjshir, inshallah,” he said in a tweet.

Ebadullah Saleh, son of deposed son of Afghanistan Vice President Amrullah Saeh, said that the Taliban’s claim of victory over Panjshir is utterly erroneous.
