BBC Findings on the Taliban Affected Ares in Afghanistan by Districts

According to the study, Afghanistan has a total of 399 independent districts, lower than the 407 reported by NATO. Although the Afghani government has control over a hundred and twenty-two of these districts it does not mean that these do not come under the Taliban affected Afghanistan region. The study further stated that IS, another terror group, had active existence in around thirty districts in Afghanistan.

Although the studies and reports clearly show that the  Afghanistan area affected by Taliban was alarmingly high, a spokesperson for the Afghan president, tried to lower down the findings and numbers. It is surprising that even after so many security measures and higher security norms the affected area in Afghanistan still comprises much more than half the country.
