Taliban Fighters In Show Of Strength, Parade Through Qalat City

LAGOS AUGUST 22ND (NEWSRANGERS)-Footage of armed Taliban fighters marching in the city of Qalat was uploaded to social media on Thursday. Dressed in white head-to-toe uniforms and flak jackets, the Islamist militants carried firearms as they marched in a straight line through the city centre.

Reuters was able to verify the videos by geo-locating monuments in Qalat City. The exact date of this footage has not been independently verified.

The Taliban called for unity ahead of Friday prayers, the first since they seized power. They asked imams to persuade people not to leave Afghanistan amid the chaos at the airport, protests and reports of violence.
