Afghans will ‘come out and demonstrate’ against the Taliban

Former Pentagon Adviser Jason Israel says people in Afghanistan “will come out and demonstrate” against the Taliban, as they want to keep the freedoms they’d had over the past 20 years.

Mr Israel said the Taliban suffers from internal “struggles for power” as the group is decentralised which will lead to revolts.

“That will provide uprisings that will have a counteraction and we can expect more violence at the local level,” he told Sky News Australia.

“It will have a civil war feel at the local level even though the Taliban is in charge, clearly, of Kabul and the national government at this point.”
