Joint garrison unit being created for Jalalabad security

JALALABD (Pajhwok): The military council of eastern Nangarhar province has decided to create a joint garrison unit to ensure security of Jalalabad city, the provincial capital, an official said Wednesday.

Attaullah Khogyani, the governor spokesman, told Pajhwok Afghan News that a joint session of the Military Council met at the governor’s house on Tuesday.

The newly appointed governor, police chief, provincial intelligence director,  fourth military unit commander, border forces, public order police commanders and police district chiefs were present at the meeting.

Governor Hayatullah Hayat said the new joint garrison was being created to prevent illegal activities and implement the law.

He said the new joint garrison unit would be led by the military and the military council would recruit new individuals directly.

Meanwhile, provincial council (PC) members and some civil societyinfo-icon activists termed the new joint garrison a great step.

Israraullah Murad, a provincial council (PC), said the proposed garrison would be better than the present joint military commissions because it would work under one plan and order.

Asadullah Larwai, a civil society activist, said both military and garrison forces would do their job. He added such joint garrison units could help protect urban centers.
