Masood’s side claimed that they had surrounded the Taliban and killed more than 300 soldiers.
“We want to make the Taliban aware that the only way forward is through dialogue,” Ahmed Masood, the son of Ahmed Shah Masood, known as the “Lion of Panjshir”, told Reuters in a phone call. To defeat the Taliban, Ahmed Massoud has set up an army made up of Afghan troops, special forces and local combat troops. “We don’t want to start a war,” said Ahmed Masood.

Meanwhile, Taliban fighters challenged Ahmed Massoud to either surrender or prepare for war. It is said that when Ahmed Masood refused to surrender, the Taliban attacked. The Masood group claims to have broken the Taliban’s supply line and trapped 1,000 Taliban. More than 300 Taliban have been killed so far.
“If the Taliban try to infiltrate the Panjshir Valley, our supporters are fully prepared for war,” Masood said. “They want to defend themselves, they want to fight, they want to oppose the dictatorial regime,” he said. Ahmed Masood has gathered about 9000 rebel soldiers in Panjshir. Dozens of recruits have been spotted doing training exercises and fitness exercises in the area, AFP reported. These soldiers also have vehicles like Humvee.
