Taliban confirms 'hundreds' of its fighters heading for Panjshir Valley

The province is a stronghold of the Northern Alliance fighters who joined with the US to topple the Taliban in 2001, and Ahmad Massoud, the son of a famous Northern Alliance commander assassinated days before the 9/11 attacks, has appeared in videos from there.

"If Taliban warlords launch an assault, they will of course face staunch resistance from us," Massoud told Al Arabiya. But he also expressed openness to dialogue with the Taliban.
