ANRF Release Photos and Identities of Captured Taliban Helicopter Crew


Despite announcements from the Taliban that their fighters were not captured, the Afghan National Resistance Front released several pictures and videos of the Taliban members that survived the downing of an Mi-8 in the Arezoo valley in Panjshir yesterday.

ANRF are saying that they shot down the helicopter and captured Taliban warlord Commander Habib-ur-Rehman, Pilots; Colonel Abdul Matin Raghat and Vali Ahmad Baluch and an assistant pilot who has not been named. They also released this video showing the moments after the crash. Note there has not been any pictures of air defense artillery, missile, or small arms damage to the airframe. So it may be possible this helicopter simply crashed and the crew members were taken prisoner.
