Residents are rejoicing in their newfound freedom after security operations eliminated many top Taliban commanders in Deh Yak and Khwaja Omari districts.
Both groups have committed 'limitless cruelty' and respected neither holy month of Ramadan nor Eid, said one local resident.
The Taliban have shut down telecommunication services from 5pm to 5am in retaliation for being beaten back by Afghan forces in the area.
The Iranian regime secretly sends a number of Fatemiyoun fighters every day to Herat Province disguised as refugees in a bid to stoke religious conflict in the country.
'We hope that the Taliban comes and makes peace... so that no one gets killed or wounded in this country,' said Shafiqullah, 15.
Afghan forces have stymied the Taliban's efforts to control certain districts in the province, and new operations are being planned against the militant group.
Concerns continue to grow over Tehran and Moscow's support for the Taliban and their bid to derail the peace process.
Mullah Haibatullah Akhundzada's message of war has earned him the nickname 'the enemy of peace'.
The group brought with them machine guns, mortars, vehicles and ammunition, and pledged to defend and support the Afghan security forces.
About 25 marchers are being held by militants, according to members of the movement.
