The city submitted with no resistance. Then he marched towards Kabul while his son Nasrollah made an excursion into Bamyan. After bold resistance against a continued fire of several days, Kabul surrendered at discretion. The Iranian army encamped in the plains of Kabul till the middle of June waiting for an answer for a letter sent to Mohammad describing the events and consequences of harboring enemies of Iranians. Bad news arrived; that the governor of Jalalabad put the Persian envoy to death. Nader encamped near Jalalabad on July, 28.
