The Taliban are reportedly killing Afghans on the streets and hanging their victims while shooting their bodies.
Shocking footage shows two men – allegedly civilians – being detained and tied into the shoes of two cars.
There have been at least 20 more similar deaths in Panjshir. BBC informed of.
The outlet reports that one of the victims, Abdul Samim, a father of two children, was killed after refusing to flee when the Taliban advanced, saying: “I am just a poor shop owner and no one from the war. Has nothing to do with it.”
The shopkeeper was later accused of selling SIM cards to resistance fighters and his body was found near his house, which according to witnesses showed signs of torture.
This is not the first time the Taliban have been violent towards civilians – in July militants ransacked Kandahar in search of government employees.
Popular comedian Nazar Mohammad is also believed to be among those killed, although the Taliban have denied involvement in his killing.
And last month Taliban death squads were reportedly pulling people out of their homes and killing them as they took control of Kabul, while thousands tried to flee the country to escape the brutal regime .
Meanwhile, horrifying footage released last week shows a group of Taliban beheading an Afghan soldier and shouting “Mujahideen” slogans while holding the severed head.
The area of Panjshir, 80 miles north of Kabul, was the bastion of the last resistance in Afghanistan.
Considered as an impregnable natural fortress, this area has immense symbolic value in the country as it has resisted the occupation of invaders in the past.
On 6 September, the Taliban raised the flag over the region as they declared a “crushing” victory of resistance fighters after days of bloody fighting.
The Zabihullah Mujahid issued a statement saying that the region was “completely conquered” and that “many people” were killed, while “the rest fled”.
He said during a news conference: “We tried our best to solve the problem through dialogue, and they rejected the talks and then we had to send our troops to fight.”
However, claims of the region’s collapse have been denied by the opposition coalition National Resistance Front (NRF).
It said: “The Taliban’s claim of capturing Panjshir is false.
“NRF forces are present at all strategic positions in the Valley to continue the fight.
“We assure the people of Afghanistan that the struggle against the Taliban and their allies will continue until justice and freedom are achieved.”
News reports from last week said fighters from the Lions of Panjshir seized three provinces from the Taliban.
amaz news The U.S. reported that Dara, Abshar and Parian districts have again come into the hands of the National Resistance Front (NRF), but the situation is “devastating” for civilians.
Meanwhile, a journalist covering the conflict in Afghanistan said the resistance had “taken a position in the mountains and valleys”.
Freud Bejan of Radio Free Europe tweeted on Friday: “The fighting continues in Panjshir, the last site of resistance to the Taliban regime in Afghanistan.
“The Taliban controls the main city and main road in the valley.
“The resistance has taken hold in the mountains and valleys, and the stable Taliban are attacking positions.”
