Taliban run training camp in Deshu: Naeem
In an exclusive interview with Pajhwok Afghan News, Mohammad Naeem said the Taliban had established a training centre in the Bahramcha area that borders Pakistan
He said the camp posed a serious threat to the security situation in several provinces. "The rebels organise their plans from the camp," claimed Naeem, who called on the central government to launch a major operation to dismantle the rebel's facility.
He said if the Taliban-prone residents in the border area were provided with work opportunities, they would not join the insurgents and would continue to live a normal life.
“They should be offered jobs through initiating development projects,” said the Helmand governor, who said situation in his province had a direct impact on the security situation in Kandahar, Farah, Nimroz, Ghor, Herat and Badghis.
Naeemi said insurgent activity had surged in districts including Nahr-i-Saraj, Sangin, Kajaki and Nad Ali.
