Panjshir with Bazarak as its provincial capital, 200 km north of Kabul, is the last province that witnessed isolated armed opposition against the Taliban-led administration after the takeover of Afghanistan by the Taliban in mid-August.

Although the Taliban-led caretaker government captured Panjshir in September, the opponents under former vice president Amrullah Saleh and Ahmad Massoud, the son of former anti-Taliban leader Ahmad Shah Massoud, occasionally speak of resistance in the valley province.
