Defiant Afghan Ex-VP Vows To Fight Taliban

Afghanistan’s defiant vice president made one thing clear as the Taliban seized control of the capital following the collapse of his government — he will not surrender.

It appears he has retreated to the country’s last remaining holdout: the Panjshir Valley northeast of Kabul.

“I won’t disappoint millions who listened to me. I will never be under one ceiling with the Taliban. NEVER,” he wrote in English on Twitter on Sunday, before going underground.

A day later, pictures began to surface on social media of the former vice president with the son of his former mentor and famed anti-Taliban fighter Ahmed Shah Massoud in Panjshir — a mountainous redoubt tucked into the Hindu Kush.

 

Saleh and Massoud’s son, who commands a militia force, appear to be putting together the first pieces of a guerilla movement to take on the victorious Taliban, as fighters regroup in Panjshir.
