Afghanistan: Taliban takes the city of Kunduz

On 28 September 2015 Taliban forces have taken Kunduz – a key city in northern Afghanistan. Kunduz also is the first provincial capital to be controlled by Taliban since their fall from power in late 2001.

This is another victory for Taliban since withdrawal of the main forces of the Western coalition in 2014. A number of other locations in Afghanistan were taken over by Taliban during 2015. Another faction in Afghanistan’s ongoing war is Islamic State, which has recently gained some territory in the east of the country.
