KABUL, Afghanistan – The Taliban have released new photos of their elite units in fully professional uniforms and rifles in a publicity stunt.

With winter in full swing, it is the traditional season when fighting usually slows down and does not resume at full capacity until spring.

However, with the latest equipment, it allows for the Taliban to continue their insurgency against US-coalition forces, who since 2001 has been unsuccessful in defeating the Taliban.

This comes as the Taliban controls upwards of 70% of Afghanistan despite US efforts to curb this and prop up the Afghan national army.
