Taliban Unveils Special Forces In Armour Vest, Helmet And Night Vision(Pics)
Reports of Taliban special forces unit patrolling Kabul have begun to emerge from Afghanistan.
When the Taliban first released images of the Badri 313, experts believed that they were sending a signal that showed they were no longer a rag-tag group of farmers, but now had modern military capabilities.
In videos and images released by the group, the Badri 313 soldiers are seen with military helmets and sunglasses instead of the usual tuban, bullet proof vests over camouflage jackets and trousers instead of the typical robes, and armed with tactical rifles
Badri 313 soldiers undergo a training exercise in promotional images.
The unit is reportedly named after the Battle of Badr that is written about in the Qur’an, in which the Prophet Mohammed successfully defeated an enemy force with just 313 men some 1,400 years ago.
