AAN’s Ali Yawar Adili is quoted here about the recent fighting in Hazara regions in Uruzgan and Ghazni:

“Hazara will never accept Taliban rule willingly, and will do their best to resist them,” says Ali Adili, a researcher at the Afghanistan Analysts Network, an independent think tank in Kabul. “Hazara do not want to have any reversal on their civic gains.” (…)

“The Taliban may want to try their chances at wresting control of the Hazara areas from the government as they already control large parts of the non-Hazara districts in Ghazni Province,” Adili says.
