Taliban battle their way into western Afghan city

Afghan Taliban fighters launched a second day of fierce clashes with Afghan forces in western Farah province on Monday, as the insurgents seek to capitalize on capture of the provincial capital and open a route for supplies. The insurgents have been trying to take control of the city of Farah since Saturday, when they overran the city center and killed hundreds of Afghan security forces. Delivering a defiant message, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani has vowed to retake the city and will not stop fighting until he does so.

In a long-anticipated push into Afghanistan’s western province of Farah, Taliban fighters have captured the provincial capital city of Farah.

From 9/11, to the fierce ground fighting, to the complete withdrawal of the United States, this is what happened.
