Taliban claim victory over resistance, call for unity

The Taliban assured the people of Panjshir, who are ethnically distinct from the Pashtun-dominated Taliban and fought against the Islamists during their rule from 1996 to 2001, that there would be no "discriminatory act against them."

The National Resistance Front of Afghanistan (NRFA) is drawn from remnants of regular Afghan army and special forces units as well as local militia fighters.

An NRFA official has said the Taliban's claim of victory was false and opposition forces continued to fight.
