In the first decade of August, the Taliban (the Taliban movement as a terrorist movement) stepped up their offensive against government forces in Afghanistan. The only province not under their control remains Panjshir, northeast of Kabul, one of the smallest regions in the country in terms of area and population.
On August 15, the militants entered the capital and took control of the presidential palace. On the night of August 16, a representative of the Taliban political office, Mohammad Naim, said that the war in Afghanistan was over, and the form of government in the state would become clear in the near future.
All land border crossings from Afghanistan are currently controlled by the Taliban. The evacuation of foreigners and Afghans working for foreign missions is carried out through the only airport in Kabul, which is held by the military of the United States and other NATO countries. The Taliban said they did not intend to provide Americans with an extension to evacuate US citizens after August 31.
