A resistance front commander, resisting the current administration in Afghanistan, reportedly surrendered and joined the government along with 12 of his men.
The state-run Bakhtar News Agency reported on Thursday, December 1, citing security sources in Panjshir province of northern Afghanistan that a National Resistance Front (NRF) commander relinquished to the new government.
“Twelve rebels led by commander Baz Mohammad and his brothers Mohammad Arez and Nek Mohammad joined the Islamic Emirate,” Bakhtar reported quoting security officials in Panjshir province.
Mawlawi Mohammad Mohsen Hashemi, the governor of Panjshir province, hailed the surrender of the resistance front commander and stated that the current administration does not favor “bloodshed.”
The authorities in Afghanistan refer to the current administration adversaries as “rebels”, especially the NRF. The NRF is led under the leadership of Ahmad Massoud, the son of the late resistance front commander Ahmad Shah Massoud when the Afghan capital collapsed in mid-August last year.
The Ahmad Massoud-led NRF has yet to confirm and respond to the surrender of the NRF commander to the NRF’s opponent, the current administration in Afghanistan.
