Since launching the auspicious Operation named ‘Azm’ (Resolve) the Mujahideen have taking great strides in securing large swathes of territory from the foreign occupiers and their native militias. They have pushed the corrupt forces of Ashraf Ghani and his foreign backers out of many territories and replaced that corrupt administration with the Islamic Emirate’s governance services which are inspired and guided by the transparency and accountability instilled in Islamic Law.
Last year’s military Operation differed from the previous ones since in prior years the Mujahideen limited themselves to conducting guerrilla warfare revolving around hit-and-run tactics. In Operation Azm however, they expanded their role by incorporating frontal large scale attacks and counter-attacks in their tactics.
As a result of these large scale frontal attacks the Mujahideen were able to grab and hold large territories including provincial districts and even provincial centers.
The Mujahideen captured the entire districts of Nawa and Khugyani in Ghazni province. They also captured Jurm, Wardug, and Baharak districts in Badakhshan, as well as Darqad and Yangi Qala districts in Takhar. In Baghlan they captured Dushi, Nahreen and many villages and military installations close to Puli Khumri in the center of the province.
Similarly they captured Konduz city as well as the outlying districts of Dasht Archi, Chardara, Imam Saheb, Ali abad, Gor Tepa and Tilawak. During these victories they captured large amounts of military and logistical equipment.
In the south they captured Nawzad, Musa Qala, Sangin, Babaji, and Marja districts in Helmand. Additionally they captured the suburban areas of many other districts in this province while leaving the centers in the hands of the enemy.
In the west they captured Khwaja Musa, Almas, Qisar, Astana Baba districts in addition to other outlying areas in the province of Faryab. In Badghis they captured Ghormach and Jwand districts while inflicting heavy losses to the enemy. In Farah province they completely captured the districts of Bala Baluk, Gulistan and Khaki Safid as well as many other peripheral areas.
In the center of Afghanistan they captured the districts of Khas Uruzgan, Charchino, and Dehrawud in Uruzgan province. In addition they also brought many outlying areas of the province under their control.
Mujahideen were also able to wrest and hold territories in the provinces of Kandahar, Kunar, Nuristan, Nangarhar, Laghman, Logar, Khost, Paktika, Paktia, Daykundi as well as other provinces. In all the areas under their control they removed the shackles of the corrupt Kabul administration and replaced them with accountable government institutions represented by the white flag of the Islamic Emirate.
On top of these frontal attacks aimed at holding territory the Mujahideen continued with their tried methods of insurgent attacks inflicting heavy financial and human losses to the enemy in Kabul, Parwan, Kandahar and other areas.
While traditionally winter has brought a lull in the fighting yet the Mujahideen broke with this tradition as well by extending their operations well beyond the summer months. The fervor and pace of their fighting has left the enemy with little respite. Even in these cold months they fear losing whole provinces to the Mujahideen fighters. We pray to Allah that the coming months will bring even more victories to the holy warriors blossoming the flower of the Islamic government over the entire country.
