The army corps of the Afghani Army has surrendered to the militants of the Taliban far-right Islamist movement near Kunduz. The troops consolidated the military base at the outskirts of town as The Washington Post reported.
At the moment of the capitulation, about 2,000 Afghani military were at the base. It is noted that the local elders visited the commanders of the corps and asked them to capitulate to Taliban who promised not to harm.
Member of of the Kunduz provincial council Zargul Alemi noted that the soldiers passed Hummer IFVS, weapons and other hardware to Taliban.
“I don’t know why the commanders did not gather their forces and fight until the last drop of their blood, with all the guns, resources and ammunition they had in the airport and the corps,” Alemi said.
Two Afghani officers on the terms of anonymity reported that the corps consolidated the military base at the outskirts of Kunduz for a few days. However, the surrender was declared later.
“The Taliban are at the gate, but no one is fighting. I don’t understand,” said one of the Afghan officers, recounting the conversation he had with a member of his unit.
The Taliban took the surrendered military to another area and offered protection as long as they stay in Kunduz province.
As we reported, the militants of the Taliban far-right Islamist movement took control over the border of Afghanistan with Uzbekistan and Tajikistan.
