Mohammad Ahmadzai, the Chief of Staff of the Afghan Army, was "dismissed" and Hebatullah Alizai was appointed as the new Chief of Staff of the Army.

Mr. Alizai was previously the commander of the special forces corps. This source also said that Sami Sadat, the commander of the 215th Army Corps, has been appointed as the commander of the Special Forces Corps.

But Mohammad Ahmadzai was appointed to this position by the President only nearly two months ago.
With the escalation of Taliban attacks and their capture of cities, especially in the north of Afghanistan, many criticisms were made of Mr. Ahmadzai's way of managing the war. Despite the severity of the war, Mr. Ahmadzai was not seen on the front lines.

A few days ago, a number of members of the House of Representatives accused him of collusion with the commanders of the army corps and demanded his dismissal.
In the past week alone, the Taliban managed to capture the center of more than 6 provinces in northern Afghanistan. Heavy fighting is going on in more than 25 provinces across Afghanistan.
Three days ago, the commander of the 209th Corps, Shahin, was dismissed from his position in Mazar-i-Sharif.

In the last 7 years, the Ministry of Defense of Afghanistan has always seen many changes in the leadership level and many believe that this has caused weakness in war management.

Nearly two months ago, after many consultations between Abdullah Abdullah and Ashraf Ghani, Bismillah Mohammadi, one of the former commanders of the resistance against the Taliban and the former minister of defense, was appointed as acting minister of defense at the suggestion of Mr. Abdullah.
