MAPS IN THE NEWS:
In advance of the fighting season that usually resumes with the spring, the Taliban is using armed drones and conventional fighters to squeeze Afghanistan's major population centers, taking control of key highways leading to Kabul and territory on the outskirts of Kunduz in the north and Kandahar in the south. Long War Journal, which has mapped shifting territorial control in Afghanistan since June 2014 when NATO ended its military mission in Afghanistan and switched to an “advise and assist” role, shows more than half of the country's population is living in areas either under Taliban control or actively "contested." www.longwarjournal.org/mapping-taliban-control-in-afghanistan
