The Northern Region of Afghanistan has been observing as an anti-Taliban hold that saw some stiff resistance to militant rule in 1990 now Taliban captured three more states in Afghanistan.

The region remains the base of several militant and fertile recruiting grounds for the armed forces in the country.

The Taliban regularly target prisons to releasing imprison fighters to replenish their ranks.

On 6 August, the insurgents captured the first provincial capital, Zaranj, in the southwestern region of Nimroz on the border with Iran. They followed it up by taking Sheberghan to northern Jawzjan Province the next day.

U.S airstrikes

The pace of Taliban advancing has caught government forces flatfooted, but they won some despite late Saturday after U.S. aircraft bombed Taliban positions in Sheberghan.

Sheberghan is a stronghold of well-known Afghan warlord Abdul Rashid Dostum, whose militiamen and government forces were reportedly retreating east to Mazar-i-Sharif in Balkh Province.

A retreat of his fighters dents the government's recent hopes that militias could help the overstretched military.
