According to the local officials in the western Farah province, the Taliban militant group has purchased modern weapons via generating revenues through the custom office of Farah province.
The modern weapons are said to include some laser weapons and reportedly equipped with night vision goggles.
The Taliban have been allegedly generating millions of Afghanis since 3 months ago by collecting money from drivers of trucks, importing commercial goods from Iran, in Mullah Laloo area of Shib Koh district.
Gulbahar Mujahid, the Security Commander of Farah Police Chief, said that the Taliban’s huge financial resource has fueled and intensifies their fight against Afghan security forces.
It’s said that unlike of previous years, the battles between the Taliban insurgents and Afghan forces have not been descended this year due to their millions of incomes.
