The Taliban have shut down the internet in Panjshir valley, where resistance forces are holding a last stand against them in Afghanistan. The action has purportedly been taken to prevent former vice president Amrullah Saleh from sharing his messages on Twitter.

Panjshir is the only Afghanistan province that has not yet fallen to the Taliban. Several Taliban opponents have gathered in Panjshir. Ahmad Massoud, the son of legendary Afghan rebel commander Ahmad Shah Massoud, is presently in Panjshir valley along with former vice president Amrullah Saleh.

After former Afghanistan president Ashraf Ghani fled the country on August 15, Amrullah Saleh had declared himself as the legitimate caretaker president of Afghanistan as per the country’s constitution.

However, Saleh’s claim is yet to be recognised by any country or international body such as the United Nations.
