The official website of the Taliban, the Afghan militia group, appears to have disappeared from the Internet tonight, for reasons that are unclear. The Taliban launched a lightning offensive last week and returned to power after 20 years.
According to a report by the Central News Agency today, the Taliban’s official website in five languages suddenly disappeared. This news was first disclosed by the “Washington Post”. It is unclear whether it is a technical problem or there are other reasons.
The Taliban operate websites in Pashto, Dari, Arabic, Urdu and English. These 5 websites all seem to have disappeared from the Internet today for unknown reasons.
According to the report, the National Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) mentioned that, according to public information, these websites have adopted the services provided by the network infrastructure and website security company CloudFlare. CloudFlare has not yet responded to media inquiries regarding this matter.
