Taliban has apparently formed a special battalion of suicide bombers named ‘Lashkar-e-Mansoori’ at Badakshan that borders China and Tajikistan.
Mulla Nisar Ahmad Ahmadi, deputy governor of Badakshan, has mentioned that this exclusive battalion will be deployed at the Afghan borders.
Ahmadi in fact mentioned that this particular battalion was important for the defeat of the US troops as they used to wear explosive waistcoats and then detonate the US bases in Afghanistan.
“These are people with literally no fear who devote themselves for the consent of Allah,” the deputy governor was quoted by the Khaama Press, as reported by the Times of India.
He claimed, “The battalion is named Lashkar-e-Mansoori "Mansoor army" and will be deployed to the borders of the country. It is the same as the one that would conduct suicide attacks targeting the security forces of the previous Afghan government.”
Moreover, another Talibani battalion ‘Badri 313’ comprising of some of their most equipped and best-trained fighters have been deployed at the Kabul International Airport.
The Taliban has subsequently rounded up a near-complete takeover of Afghanistan amidst the subsequent troops of the American and NATO troops from the region in the last few months.
