|History and Biodata||
District Police Chief:
Local officials in Badakhshan province said that militants were controlling only two areas in Jurm district.(20140127) In the past three years 2013-2015, the Taliban have gained control of about 70 percent of the Jurm district, which is home to more than 35,000 people. There are several reasons for that, including the presence of lapis lazuli mines that have at times been a focal point of fighting. The remote province’s mountainous terrain and limited road network have made it difficult for the Afghan military to respond quickly to Taliban attacks. In the past two years, the Taliban have on at least three occasions overrun a district center in Badakhshan, before being fought off or quickly retreating.
