Rebels out to disrupt polls: ANA commander

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Militants are using all possible tactics to disrupt the April presidential and provincial council elections, a security official said on Monday.

Col. Gul Rahman Roshanger, the 201st Selab Military Corps commander in the eastern zone, said bomb and suicide attacks had witnessed a surge ahead of the polls.

He told Pajhwok Afghan News Talibaninfo-icon’s tactics would not work and security forces and Afghan National Army (ANA) were ready to ward off any threat.

There were no major hurdles and security forces were providing all-out support to the people to facilitate their participation in the ballot, he added.

Kapisa, Panjsher and Parwan provinces and Sarobi district of Kabul are included in the operational zone under the Selab Corps. And so are Nangarhar, Kunar, Laghman and Nuristan provinces.

Roshanfger said the eastern zone shared a long border with Pakistaninfo-icon, with armed rebels always trying to sneak into Afghanistaninfo-icon.

“We will use all the available resources to support our soldiers in foiling the rebel attacks,” he concluded.
