MORE FORCED EVICTIONS — Another 24 families in Panjshir were reportedly forcibly evicted from their homes for reputedly collaborating with the NRF. It is not clear where the families were moved to and/or their current disposition.
NRF STRIKE — The NRF launched a preemptive strike against the Taliban Security Forces headquarters in the Warsaj district early on Sunday. The fighting was said to be fierce, and the Taliban were thought to have suffered a significant number of casualties. A source within the Resistance claimed the NRF had been surveilling the headquarters for some time and found the security to be lax enough to warrant an attack.
DYKE BREACH IN PAKISTAN — There is concern that Lake Manchar in southern Pakistan is close to breaching the protective dyke due to the recent torrential rains. If so, it could burst through the embankment and cause massive damage in Pakistan’s southern agricultural sector. The lake is the largest in Pakistan and one of the largest in Central Asia. Overwhelming rains from the recent intense monsoons have wreaked havoc across Pakistan and Afghanistan this season.

It didn’t have to be this way. In April 2021, when President Biden announced his plan for Afghanistan, he gave us a false choice: the U.S. either had to ramp up forces to battle the Taliban or abide by President Trump’s agreement with the Taliban and immediately leave. Biden chose the latter, with the idea that he would give the Afghan government years before collapse and shield him from criticism. Afghanistan would then be someone else’s problem.
