A number of men and women took to the streets of Kabul chanting slogans against Pakistan as they claimed the latter's jets conducted airstrikes in Panjshir province. According to the reports, the Taliban fired shots in the air to disperse them.

The media reports further added that approximately 70 protesters, most of them women, showed up at the Pakistani embassy in Kabul, holding banners and chanting slogans against what they considered interference by Islamabad.

According to news agency AFP, the Taliban fired shots in the air to disperse the anti-Pakistan rally in Kabul.


The protest comes a day after the Taliban confirmed Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) Director-General Lieutenant-General Faiz Hameed met the group's co-founder Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar.

Videos shared by the local media showed hundreds of Afghan men and women chanting slogans against Pakistan and showing placards on the streets of Kabul. Later, the protests spread to the Balkh province in the north of Afghanistan where hundreds were seen agitating on the streets.

The Taliban fighters reportedly conducted aerial firing to disperse the protesters but they were still protesting and very few people left the protest.
