TIRINKOT (Pajhwok): Talibaninfo-icon militants have destroyed two telephone towers in the Deh Rawod district of central Uruzgan province, officials said on Saturday.

The governor’s spokesman, Navid Afghanzai, told Pajhwok Afghan News the Taliban torched the two telephone towers of the AWCC in two separate areas of the district on Friday night.

An official of the Uruzgan IT Department, who wished to go unnamed, confirmed the incident. “The Taliban had warned telecom companies to suspend their services for specific hours in daytime to escape harsh consequences.”

Based on the Taliban warning, telecom companies operate only for two hours a day. Four months back, the militants had torched nine telephone towers in the province.
