Taliban executions and kidnappings in Andarab
Updated: Sep 24, 2021
Contrary to their promises of tolerance for the Afghan people, Taliban forces in Andarab have kidnapped local children for use as hostages, executing a number of women and elderly men who attempted to save them. The Taliban’s brutal treatment of these civilian noncombatants is a sign of what Afghanistan will look like under their rule. Resistance forces are fighting in Andarab to create paths of escape to Panjshir, towards which hundreds of families have fled in fear of further Taliban atrocities. Events such as these underscore the urgency of the situation on the ground—please, donate today.
