“The Panjshir Valley is held by anti-Taliban resistance fighters, and the Taliban effectively cut internet and telecommunications access, a BBC reporter tweeted Monday:
“Local sources tell me almost all internet and telecom services have been disrupted by the Taliban in Panjshir. An anti-resistance movement has been forming there since the fall of Kabul #Afghanistan”
Loss of internet access will affect the resistance’s ability to communicate, particularly with the outside world as the Taliban seek to consolidate their hold of the country after President Joe Biden’s withdrawal completed.
Cutting internet access is a common tactic in communist countries, mimicking the Cuban regime during the protests there earlier this summer, the Free Beacon reported.
Kabul residents still have internet and telecommunications access, but Panjshir Valley residents noted Monday that their access was cut. China, a potential Taliban ally, has internet firewalls limiting access throughout their country, the Free Beacon noted.
Taliban leaders had met with officials at the Afghanistan Telecommunications Regulatory Authority last week, and former chairman Mohammad Najeeb Azizi warned, “the internet is under threat in Afghanistan,” fearing the censoring of anti-Taliban speech.
Internet in the country was already in peril as the Taliban have been destroy cell towers in recent months and South Africa’s MTN Group announced it would cease operations in Afghanistan. Newsmax
Comment: Yes, I know, you all are pleased to be out of the infernal place. So am I, but we will be less pleased as evidence piles up of the devilment that will become evident as the medieval goat f–kers consolidate control of the country and move to cut the place off from both internal and international communications. They will surely do that.
The weepy, lefty, creeps who run the Biden soviet will not do anything about that but sob a bit. What they should do is saturate the country with pre-paid SATCOM communications. If they don’t know how to do the saturation a few of us here would be glad to inform them. pl
