Afghan interpreter for US Army beheaded by Taliban, as militant group now claim almost 90% of Afghan territory following US withdrawal of forces



Sohail Pardis, an Afghan interpreter who worked for the US Army has been beheaded by the Taliban, it has been revealed.



Pardis was one of the thousands of Afghan interpreters who worked for the US military. The Taliban now claims it has 85% territory control of Afghanistan following the withdrawal of US forces ordered by president Joe Biden.



According to a CNN report on Friday morning July 23, Pardis was driving from his home in Afghanistan's capital Kabul to nearby Khost province on May 12 for Eid when his vehicle was blocked at a checkpoint by the Taliban.


Villagers who witnessed the incident say the Taliban shot his car before it swerved and stopped. They then dragged Pardis out of the vehicle and beheaded him.


Just days before, Pardis had confided to his friend that he was receiving death threats from the Taliban, who had discovered he had worked as a translator for the United States Army for 16 months during the 20-year-long conflict.Latest Post
