The Afghanistan army has deployed thousands of forces to major cities including the capital Kabul as people across the country mark Eid al-Adha.

Over the last few Eid holidays, the Taliban had called temporary ceasefires, saying it wanted to let Afghans spend them in peace. This time, there has been no such announcement, as the Taliban make swift territorial gains in near-unprecedented levels of fighting nationwide.
