The Taliban said it had sent hundreds of fighters to the region after they claimed that local state officials refused to hand it over peacefully.

Yesterday, the Taliban posted videos on social media showing trucks full of soldiers making their way to the area.

But resistance fighters pushed back against the Taliban in the mountainous region located north of Kabul throughout the night.

Ali Nazary, head of the foreign relations for a coalition of anti-Taliban groups, told the Financial Times that opposition fighters had defeated the Taliban in the region.
