    The Taliban is eyeing victory as US forces and its international allies complete their withdrawal from Afghanistan. Ahead of the final US pull-out, the militant group has started retaking Afghan cities to re-establish its version of an Islamic state. Violence has escalated across the country in recent weeks, with the Taliban predicting the imminent fall of Afghanistan’s “slave government” once US forces have left the country.
