Updated: Sep 24
Site contributors have mapped the military situation in northeastern Afghanistan as of 29 August 2021. Combat in eastern Baghlan Province (directly north of Panjshir) continues, with towns in Andarab District most vigorurously contested. The National Resistance Front controls and has fortified all mountain crossings into Panjshir, including Anjuman Pass and Khawak Pass.
