Exchange of Prisoners:
The stooge admin in Kabul convened a ‘Loya Jirga’ (Grand Council) to decide the release of remaining prisoners of the Islamic Emirate. This Jirga was called on Friday 7th August, which ended on Sunday 9th August after issuing a declaration advising the stooge admin to release of the remaining four hundred Mujahidin prisoners.
The Islamic Emirate had already announced the illegitimacy of this Jirga, which was backed up by several participants of this Jirga by calling it a bogus process, as the stooge admin in Kabul was already directed by American side that Mujahidin prisoners should be released without any further delay.
On Monday 10th August, Ashraf Ghani signed the release of these Mujahidin prisoners, whereas the Australian government asked the Americans that those Taliban should not be released who were involved in killing the Australian occupying forces.
On Monday 16th August, the French government also expressed its discontent with the release of those Mujahidin prisoners who were involved in killing the French occupying forces.
Following these disapprovals, the stooge admin in Kabul resorted to lame excuses for delaying the release of prisoners despite the approval of ‘Loya Jirga’ or ‘Grand Council’.
Atmar said that an international consensus should be built up for the release of remaining prisoners, whereas Ashraf Ghani added that the release of these prisoners can result in increased drug trafficking to Europe; an excuse which had neither head nor tail.
On Thursday 20th August, the Islamic Emirate asked the American side to convince the puppet regime in Kabul for the acceleration of this process; and eventually the stooge admin bowed to release these prisoners.
On Saturday 8th August, several enemy forces were killed and wounded when the public administration brigade came under severe Mujahidin attacks in Ghazni province.
On Monday 17th August, Murghab district in Ghor province came under Mujahidin control after a heavy fighting.
On Monday 24th August, the center of Deh-i-Yak district in Ghazni province came under severe attacks of Mujahidin.
On the same day, the enemy forces fled away and evacuated a key military base in Kunduz province, which directly came under Mujahidin control.
On the following day, a key commando base was attacked by Mujahidin in Balkh province, in which several enemy forces were killed and wounded.

On Tuesday 4th August, Donal Trump reiterated that the number of American forces will be reduced to four thousand personnel inside Afghanistan as soon as possible; whereas
On Sunday 16th August, media reported that Armenia is sending fresh troops to Afghanistan; and
