US intelligence: Taliban can take over Kabul as early as a month

US intelligence officials believe that the Taliban can recapture the Afghan’s capital Kabul, earlier than they expected previously.
The US officials on the condition of anonymity told The Washington Post that they had expected the collapse of Kabul from 6 to 12 months after the foreign troops’ withdrawal but everything has changed and the time has come to be 3 months now, as reported by Afghan media.
The speed at which the Taliban are gaining territories is surprising and some predict that the capital could even by collapsed in a period of 1 month.
The latest US intelligence assessment said Kabul could fall to militants as early as a month
The Wall Street Journal reported: US officials now worry that Afghan civilians, soldiers, and others will flee the city ahead of a Taliban assault.
The Taliban managed to collapse 9 provinces only in 6 days which shows the speed of their territorial gains.
US military officials acknowledged that nothing is moving in the right direction in Afghanistan and the security situation is way worse than it was in the month of June.
As the US full withdrawal gets completed by September, there is a grave concern of the Taliban to be overtaking entire Afghanistan by force.
US Department of State reiterated that the Taliban’s government will not be recognized if it is imposed by force.
The warning comes as the Troika plus meeting on Afghanistan is going on in Doha which aims at pressing the Taliban to avoid violence and agree upon armistice.
