History of the Afghan Taliban at a Glance

The Taliban have taken over most of Afghanistan. The Taliban emerged in Afghanistan in the 1990s. The report is based on their history. The Taliban movement began in 1994, when Dr. Najib’s government ended. 

After that, the Afghan Mujahideen were the victims of a civil war. The Taliban was led by Mullah Mohammad Omar. Taken However, instead of Kabul, Kandahar was retained as the capital. In 1998, there was strong resistance from Abdul Rashid Dostum’s militia, but since then the Taliban have also seized Mazar-e-Sharif. Al-Qaeda’s leadership, including Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri, came to Afghanistan. 

On September 9, 2001, Ahmad Shah Massoud was assassinated by two suicide bombers in the guise of journalists. Two days later, the events of September 11 in the United States changed the world. The United States has blamed al-Qaeda for the 9/11 attacks and called on the Taliban to hand over Osama bin Laden to the United States, failing which the United States invaded Afghanistan on October 7 A month later, on November 9, Mazar-e-Sharif and then on November 13, Kabul were captured by the Allies. Shortly afterwards, the Afghan Taliban launched operations against the Allies in Afghanistan.

Terrorist groups have also carried out suicide attacks and other operations inside Pakistan, killing thousands of Pakistanis, including former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto. The United States has also carried out drone strikes in Pakistan’s tribal areas. 

As a result, several Pakistani Taliban terrorist leaders, including Baitullah Mehsud and Hakimullah Mehsud, were killed. The United States eventually began talks with the Afghan Taliban and agreed to withdraw its troops from Afghanistan. 

Negotiations between the Afghan sides continued in Doha, the capital of Qatar, but Afghan groups could not agree on a reconciliation formula. Later, Afghan forces could not fight the Taliban and without any resistance, the Taliban captured most of Afghanistan.
