From Allah’s Ragtag Army to Commandos | Just a matter of stolen American tactical gear
Heavily armed fighters with American equipment and commando-style bullet proof vests and 'night vision goggles'.
Reports of a Taliban special forces unit patrolling Kabul have begun to emerge from Afghanistan, shattering the stereotypical image held by many of the militant group.
Rather than the typical Salwar Kameez and AK-47 slung over the shoulder that has become synonymous with farmer-turned-terrorist Taliban fighters, the 'Badri 313' battalion forces are an altogether different outfit.
The unit, previously unveiled by the Taliban in promotional material, are reportedly highly trained and equipped with state-of-the-art military equipment. Well, we take it all with a spoonful of salt.
