Rumours of Ahmad Massoud's defection are categorically False
Updated: Sep 24, 2021
Earlier today, it was falsely suggested that Ahmad Massoud had defected to the Taliban. We write to vigourously deny these rumours. Ahmad Massoud is still in Panjshir with the resistance. He has not and will not join the very group that assassinated his father when he was a child. Ali Nazary, spokesman for Ahmad Massoud, cautioned his followers to be wary of disinformation spread by the Taliban.
