Breaking: Panjshir Reportedly Mounting Resistance to Taliban Takeover!

Panjshir is the last remaining province in #Afghanistan that has not been overrun by the T-ban. It appears that thousands of Afghan military holdouts, militia fighters, and armed civilians are massing there to created a unified resistance against the new militant controlled Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan. Ahmad Massoud (above), son of former Northern Alliance leader Ahmad Shah Massoud, and Afghan VP Amrullah Saleh, have met in Panjshir with other military figures to reportedly lead the armed resistance. After President Ghani fled the country, VP Saleh stated he “Will never bow to Taliban.” The T-ban have pledged to “hunt down” Saleh and Massoud, calling them “insurgents.” Northern Alliance 2.0? We will have to wait and see.

Ahmad Massoud was born on 10 July 1989 in Piyu in the province of Takhar in North-East Afghanistan.

After finishing his secondary school education in Tajikistan, Massoud spent a year on a military course at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. In 2012, he commenced an undergraduate degree in War Studies at the King's College, London where obtained his bachelor's degree in 2015. He obtained his master's degree in International Politics from the City, University of London in 2016.

Massoud returned to Afghanistan and was appointed CEO of the Massoud Foundation in 2016.

Since March 2019, Massoud has officially entered politics.

He strongly endorses his father's idea of a Swiss model for internal power-relations in Afghanistan, saying that the decentralization of government and the de-concentration of power from Kabul would give a more efficient allocation of resources and authority to provinces in the country, thereby bringing prosperity and stability to the country as a whole.
