The Taliban have received men, weapons, and explosives but also direction from across our southern frontiers, which is Pakistan, said Ahmad Shuja Jamal, head of international affairs at Afghanistan’s National Security Council.

In an interview with Al Jazeera, he said: “That is why (they) are able to put up with such a stiff resistance across the country.” Jamal said of the many explosive devices that were used to killed American soldiers in Afghanistan, 80 per cent of them used ammonium nitrate which is fertilizer but also a precursor for explosives were produced in two Pakistani factories.

“If you focus on a given sliver of time, at any given moment, a province may have come under the Taliban’s control. But I think the situation remains completely fluid, which means, as we are speaking, the Afghan National Defence and Security Forces are actually rallying and pushing the Taliban out of the province of Kunduz.
