The Panjshir Valley is a valley in north-central Afghanistan, located 150 km north of Kabul, close to the Hindu Kush Mountain range. It is divided by Panjshir River. It is home to Afghanistan?s largest concentration of ethnic Tajiks.
Taliban and opposing forces are currently battling to take control of the valley, which is currently the last Afghan province resisting the militant group?s occupation in the war-torn country. Both sides are currently claiming to have an upper hand in the conflict, though none provided a concrete evidence to support their claims.
