Police ready for spring offensive in the north: Gen. Baba Jan
MAZAR-I-SHARIRF (Pajhwok): A senior security official on Sunday said they would not let the enemies implement their disruptive plans in the northern zone.
The 707th Pamir Zone police commander, Gen. Baba Jan, told a meeting with civil society activists that enhanced coordination among security organs and people’s cooperation with them could strength the forces in the northern zone.
He said Taliban militants adopted different strategies to disrupt the security of the zone, but they could not succeed. He said the insurgents wanted to target influential figures and attack checkpoints to capture some districts, but they failed.
He said they had prepared plans with new tactics for the spring operations and the plans would be executed in the near future.
A civil society activist in Mazar-i-Sharif, Yazdan Parast, supported the Afghan security personnel, saying security in the north could positively impact the security of the whole country.
The security forces should prevent a Kunduz-like debacle and should preempt Taliban attacks on them, he suggested.
