Ahmed Masood, having spent years in exile in Britain and Iran, still lives under the shadow of his father’s name and does not have much political influence.

The Panjshir Valley, located north of Afghanistan’s capital Kabul, is the last major stronghold of anti-Taliban forces.

Analysts say that if the Taliban attack, the armed groups gathered there will fight them.

The Panjshir Valley, surrounded by the Hindukush hills to the north of Kabul, has long been known as the center of anti-Taliban forces.

Afghan leader Ahmed Shah Massoud had successfully defended the Panjshir Valley during the Soviet-Afghan War and the civil war with the Taliban until his death in 2001.
