Taliban Claims Large Swath of Afghan Territory During 2015

ISLAMABAD— The Taliban says it seized control of 34 of Afghanistan’s nearly 400 districts during fighting in 2015 and that most of them remain under its control.

“Over the past 14 years, 2015 can be labeled as one of the most successful and inspiring jihadi year, which was fraught with numerous significant and sometimes unanticipated achievements in its fold,” said a Taliban statement, titled “A review of Jihadi Progress in 2015,” that was sent to reporters Saturday.
