Fahim Dashti Killed in Panjshir
Fahim Dashty, the spokesperson of the National Resistance Front of Afghanistan, was a senior member of the Jamiat-e-Islami party and a member of the Federation of Afghan Journalists, Khaama Press reported.
Panjshir valley lies in the Hindu Kush mountains, approximately 90 miles north of Kabul. The Taliban have been unable to take this significant holdout of resistance after steamrolling across pro-government troops in a matter of months.
The developments came after the battle over Panjshir province escalated on Friday night. Reports have emerged that the valley may collapse soon. However, resistance forces denied such claims, The Khaama Press reported.
Ahmad Massoud Statement

Mr. Massoud said the National Resistance Front is committed to peacefully resolving differences with the Taliban.
Panjshir Valley Fight
Panjshir Valley is the only region out of the Taliban’s hands, courtesy of its geographic ruggedness. It is jealously guarded as the birthplace of one of Afghanistan’s most fantastic sons.
The anti-Taliban fighters are led by former vice president Amrullah Saleh, who has appealed for humanitarian aid to help the thousands of people displaced by the fighting. Several Taliban delegations have attempted negotiations with the holdouts there, but talks have failed to gain traction. Saleh fled to Panjshir after Afghan President Ashraf Ghani quit Afghanistan as the Taliban marched on the capital. The fighters’ lightning blitz across the country took less than a week to overrun some 3,00,000 government troops, most of whom surrendered or fled.
