KUNDUZ, Afghanistan, July 7 (Xinhua) -- Taliban militants have intensified activities since late last month to overrun Kunduz, the strategically important city in northern Afghanistan.
The Taliban had twice briefly captured Kunduz city, capital of the northern Kunduz province located 250 km north of Kabul, in 2015 and 2016 respectively.
This latest development has again caused concerns among Kunduz residents about the fragile security situation in their homeland.
"It is about one week that the Taliban fighters have taken positions in several parts around the Kunduz city and the status quo has caused concerns among the residents," said resident Rahmatullah.
Expressing concerns over the fragile security situation, the worrying man warned that any negligence by security organs would enable the armed oppositions to storm the besieged city.
