While the Taliban says Mr. Saleh operates from Turkey, the resistance insists their leaders are in Panjshir. This claim cannot be presently verified.
There have been conflicting reports about the Taliban taking over the control of Panjshir valley, and some media reported that Saleh had fled to Tajikistan. However, the report was denied by Saleh himself, who said he has been engaging with the local commanders in the valley and claimed that they are mounting a strong offensive against the Taliban.
However, there is no proper evidence on where the top leadership of the Afghan resistance are presently stationed.
