Taliban staged an attack on Monday, September 28th in northern Afghanistan taking complete control over the city of Qanduz. This is the largest success gained by this group following its overthrow back in 2001, the Associated Press reported.
Afghan Interior Minister spokesman Sedigh Sedighi confirmed the fall of the city of Qanduz, adding, “Security forces were aware of a possible attack, but never expected an assault at such a scale.”
