Dostum arrives in north, vows to teach militants a ‘lesson’

Apr 19, 2016 - 16:49

SHIBERGHAN (Pajhwok): First Vice-President Abdul Rashid Dostum Tuesday vowed to drive insurgents from areas they held in northern provinces.

Dostum arrived in northern Jawzjan province after a stopover in Balkh province on his way from Kabulinfo-icon to spearhead operations against militants in Jawzjan, Faryab and Kunduz provinces.

Upon arriving in Shiberghan, the VP called a meeting with top security officials and discussed with them the offensives to be carried out besides Jawzjan, Faryab and Kunduz in other northern provinces.

A local official said it would be decided from which district the operations should be started once the security situation was assessed by the authorities concerned.

The VP said he arrived in the north to launch operations against militants and to teach them a lesson.

Dostum had earlier spearheaded operations against militants in northern provinces, but the insurgents resumed assaults after the VP’s return to Kabul.
