KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): Special security arrangements have been put in place to prevent the insurgents from carrying out attacks on the 9th and 11th of September, an official said on Sunday.

On September 9, people in Kabul and other provinces would mark the 10th death anniversary of former jihadiinfo-icon commander, Ahmad Shah Massoud, who was killed in the first ever suicide attack in Afghanistanin 2001.

Although the Talibaninfo-icon fighters had threatened attacks on this day, the 111 military unit commander, Maj. Gen. Qadam Shah Shahin, told a news conference special security arrangement had been carried out to prevent the attacks.

"I ensure the countrymen, particularly the residents of Kabul, that we will prevent all sorts of attacks and will try to maintain security for the whole country," he said.

He said five centres aimed at preventing security threats had been established at all the entrances to Kabul.

Afghan soldiers had been deputed at the third security belt of Kabul city, where checkpoints were established to deal with any untoward situation on the two occasions.
