Taliban militants began entering Afghanistan’s capital Kabul from all sides without facing any resistance, BBC reported.
In a statement published in Afghan-based Tolo News, the Taliban said that talks are underway with the other side to negotiate entering Kabul in a way to prevent harm to the people. The government will be responsible for the security of Kabul until “the transition process” is done.
It reported that the Taliban ordered its members to wait near the Kabul gates and not try to enter the city. It is not seeking revenge and that all civilian and military officials will remain safe.
Meanwhile, Afghan’s Acting Interior Minister Abdul Sattar Mirzakwal said Kabul will not be attacked and that the transition will happen peacefully. He assures Kabul residents that security forces will ensure the security of the city.
