91pc organised attacks prevented from happening

KABULinfo-icon(PANinfo-icon): Intelligence operatives have been able to prevent 91 percent of organised insurgent attacks from happening as a result of arresting masterminds, an official said on Sunday.

Militants managed to execute only nine percent of their planned attacks, the spokesman for the National Directorate of Security, Lutfullah Mashal, told a press conference in Kabul.

Mashal said Afghan army and police were involved in the prevention of attacks, with the directorate officials providing intelligence.

"NDSinfo-icon is the best intelligence network in the region," he said, adding spy agencies of neighbouring countries were busy in Afghanistaninfo-icon instead of working in their own country. He did not name any country.

"The NDS works inside Afghanistan to protect the national interest and maintain the rule of law," he said, describing the current year important from security point of view in the wake of the start of security transition process from international forces to Afghans.
