The Taliban terrorist group has declared its control of the entire territory of Afghanistan. This was reported by the Arab TV channel Al Arabia on August 15.

“There is no fighting in the capital of the country, the movement has taken control of all of Afghanistan,” the Taliban said in a report. The channel's sources, however, could not yet confirm this information.

The Taliban entered the capital Kabul this morning but did not storm it. Instead, they began negotiations with the official authorities of Afghanistan. According to Al Arabiya, President Ashraf Ghani will announce his resignation in the next few hours.

The Interior Ministry announced that power would be handed over peacefully, through the formation of a transitional government with the Taliban.

The Taliban also announced the capture of two more provincial centers of Afghanistan Bamyan and Kapisa, and the largest airbase Bagram, which had been previously handed over to the Afghan military by the USA.

According to BBC News, the militants also took control of a prison near the Bamian airbase and released their supporters from there.

Recall that as soon as the U.S. withdrew troops from Afghanistan, the Taliban militants launched a new and rapid offensive. On Sunday, August 15, they entered Kabul.

U.S. authorities began evacuating their diplomats from Kabul, promising to send more troops to the capital to secure the embassy and the local airport. Italy, the Czech Republic, and Britain have also announced the evacuation of their diplomats.

U.S. intelligence said last month that Kabul would fall in six months to a year. A week ago, intelligence agencies said Afghanistan would be completely overrun in a month, three at the most.
