Taliban advance across Afghanistan as US withdraws

DW, 28 Jul 2021
The Taliban have been making rapid gains in Afghanistan as the US and its allies withdraw their troops. Their advance has sparked concern over the Islamist militants regaining power.

In recent weeks, the Taliban have escalated their offensive, gaining control over rural districts and surrounding provincial capitals.

The United States will continue carrying out airstrikes in support of Afghan forces fighting the Taliban "in the coming weeks," a top US general said Sunday.

Thousands of Afghans are fleeing to escape the Taliban’s rapid advance.
