In a speech at a major gathering of jihadi commanders somewhere in Afghanistan in February 2021, the Afghan Taliban's operation chief, commander Sirajuddin Haqqani, warned the Biden administration that if the U.S.-Taliban Doha agreement is scrapped, the Taliban will have missiles and drones to use – a new phenomenon in the Afghanistan-Pakistan-Kashmir region.
Haqqani said: "15 years ago, we fought [the U.S.] with faith & with weaker military strength. Today we have both. We have the technology to use drones, we have our own missiles. This time if the mujahideen resume fighting, it would be something they have never seen before. They will wish the battlefield was like in the past."
