US intelligence officials believe that the Taliban can topple the Afghan capital Kabul, sooner than they expected previously.
The officials on the condition of anonymity told The Washington Post that they had predicted the collapse of Kabul from six to 12 months after the foreign troops’ withdrawal but everything has changed and the time has come to be three months now, as per Afghan media reports.
The pace at which the Taliban are gaining territories is surprising and some predict that the capital could even by collapsed in a span of one month.
The latest US intelligence assessment said Kabul could fall to militants as early as a month, officials said.
