Taliban Re-take Territory in Afghanistan

While the attention of the Afghan government and the media is focused on major battles in the south of the country, the Taliban are making major headway in a northern region.

Badghis, a north-western province wedged between Herat and Faryab, has been the scene of heavy fighting for the past two months, and the insurgents have occupied three of the province's seven districts. They have also established intelligence and operational networks in most district centers.

The situation in Afghanistan is not going as well as reported in the mainstream press.
