A single member of the NRF records as a company-sized element of Taliban fighters swarm to rescue their security commander in Panjshir after an NRF ambushed caused his vehicle to rollover.
If you haven't been paying attention to Afghanistan the past few weeks, then you probably wouldn't know that a group known as the NRF has just recently cropped up and started to make waves. While the NRF, or National Resistance Front of Afghanistan, has been around for a minute, the group has only just now started to catch the attention of the people of Afghanistan and the rest of the world. Throughout the country, young Afghan men have started putting out videos of them swearing their allegiance to the NRF's movement. One group has even stated that they will start conducting guerilla style attacks against the Taliban in Kabul.
Since some of you are probably just learning about the NRF for the first time in this article, let me take a minute to explain who and what they are. The NRF is a group of anti-Taliban fighters comprised of Northern Alliance, Afghan Commandos, and other anti-Islamic Extremist groups who do not recognize the rule of the Taliban. Their objective is to eventually overthrow the Taliban, and reinstate the Afghan government that was built under ISAF occupation. The NRF is led by Ahmad Massoud, son of Ahmad Shah Massoud or the “Lion of Panjshir,” as many know him.
In this video, what you're looking at is an NRF fighter watching as Taliban fighters swarm around a vehicle that rolled over in an ambush against the Taliban in the Panjshir Valley. According to reports coming out of the region, the Security Commander for the region was seriously injured in the ambush, and his body guard was killed. Footage of the actual ambush has yet to be released by the NRF, but due to their current location we believe it may be difficult for them to get their message out to the rest of the world.
While this video is short, it is more evidence that the NRF is indeed starting to revolt against Taliban rule. If anyone has a contact with Starlink and Elon Musk, now might be the time to prove that you can't stop the signal, man.
