New recruits train in Panjshir
Updated: Sep 24
Scores of Panjshiri youth have volunteered to defend their homeland alongside the Northern Alliance, engaging in military training under the leadership of veteran soldiers. They are undergoing drills on tactics, military fitness, and their ability to employ the defensive features of their home terrain, but need arms and other materiel. Will you help supply them?
Equally prepared to take up the fight are the women of Panjshir, many of whom are armed and ready for war. As the women of the Peshmerga did against ISIS, Taliban fighters will soon find their conception of gender challenged (in the most convincing of ways) if they choose to attack the Panjshir Valley.
