Rebels taste defeat in Khost attacks: Ghairat

Rebels taste defeat in Khost attacks: Ghairat

May 02, 2015 - 16:16

KHOST CITY (Pajhwok): The police chief on Saturday said elaborate security arrangements had been put in place to prevent attacks from insurgents in southeastern Khost province.

Brig. Gen. Faizullah Ghairat told Pajhwok Afghan News police were jointly working with other security forces on various security plans aimed at curtailing insurgent activities in the province.

He said the Talibaninfo-icon’s spring offensive “Azm” (determination) was nothing but a propaganda which had no impact on Afghan security forces.

“We have put in place strong security measures. We hold meetings with other security organs to make important decisions.”

The police chief said insurgents had not only achieved nothing from their recent attacks, but tasted defeat as he referred to Friday’s attack in which 25 militants were killed and 21 others wounded in Alisher and Terezai districts.

“The fighters make all their efforts and use every technique to weaken the government’s writ but security forces are ready and capable to frustrate their designs”, Ghairat said.

Abdul Wali Wahidzai, a provincial council member, said the government should bring into use all its resources for security in Khost.

The Taliban announced launching their spring offensive last month with a massive attack on northern Kunduz province and bomb blasts in Khost.
