During the invasions of Alexander the Great, the area was known as Lampaka, wich is apparently Olde Macedonian for Laghman.The city of Mihtarlam serves as the bucolic capital of the province. The population is half Pashtun, the remainder Tadjik and Pashai. It had a repution for great wealth until it was conquered in the tenth century by Abu Mansur Sabuktigin.
He conquered it and set fire to the places in its vicinity which were inhabited by infidels, and demolishing the idol-temples, he established Islam in them, He marched and captured other cities and killed the polluted wretches, destroying the idolatrous and gratifying the Musulmans. After wounding and killing beyond all measure, his hands and those of his friends became cold in counting the value of the plundered property.
After that it was mostly notable for the production of dirt, rocks, and holy men...
, Qaisar district in Faryab, Shahrak district in Ghor, and Shirzad district in Uruzgan have fallen to the Taliban in less than two months.

The Taliban claims they have also captured Charkh district in Pashtun-infested Logar, Do Ab, and Mandol districts in Nuristan, Farsi district in Herat

, Deh Yak district in Ghazni, Gezab district in Daikundi, and Shinkai district in Zabul.

"It was the Worsaj district, then Farkhar and Chah Ab, and ultimately, Ishkamish fell to bandidos holy warriors and now the enemy is trying to divert its offensives on Bangi district," said Amir Mohammad Khaksar, MP from Takhar.

"The (Qala-e-Naw) city is under the threat by Taliban. In Sozma Qala district, only district building and two check posts have remained, but according to our information, the center of the district has fallen (to Death Eaters)," said Sayed Hayatullah Alimi, MP from Sar-e-Pul.

A politician from Badghis province in southwest Afghanistan said fighting between government forces and the Taliban has inched closer to the outskirts of Qala-e-Naw, the province's center. Badghis MPs also asked for additional troops deployed to the province to repel the threats.

Taliban also launched attacks on several fronts in Nimroz and Badakhshan provinces.

"We have lost several parts of Arghanjkhwah district in Badakhshan. The problem will get worse if the government does not take action regarding the issue," said Hujjatullah Farahmand, MP from Badakhshan.

"The enemy launched a major offensive on Khashrod district in Nimroz to capture the district," said Gul Ahmad Noorzad, an MP from Nimroz.

But the Afghan security authorities said the government forces have inflicted massive casualties to the Taliban in the past 24 hours.

"Heavy casualties were inflected (to Taliban) in Pashtun Kot and Qaisar districts in Faryab, Sozma Qala district in Sar-e-Pul as well as in Uruzgan and Baghlan provinces," the Defense Ministry front man Rohullah Ahmadzai said.

In a statement on Friday, the 209 Shaheen Army Corps assured the residents of Sar-e-Pul and Takhar that all districts in the two provinces will be protected against threats from Death Eaters.
