NSC orders operations intensified against insurgents

NSC orders operations intensified against insurgents

Nov 15, 2018 - 20:52

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The National Security Council (NSC) on Thursday directed the defense and security forces to intensify their operations against insurgents in order to protect civilian lives and reduce security forces’ casualties.

The NSC, President Ashraf Ghani’s security team, issued the directives after thousands fled homes to escape clashes between Talibaninfo-icon militants and Afghan forces in two districts of southern Ghazni province --- Jaghori and Malistan.

While more than 30 policemen were killed in a single Taliban attack in Khak-i-Safid district of western Farah province.

A statement from the NSC said the Afghan defense and security forces were currently battling the insurgents across the country particularly in Ghazni, Farah, Baghlan, Kunduz, Takhar, Zabul and Ghorinfo-icon provinces.

The statement said the enemies of the Afghanistaninfo-icon’s people, after sustaining heavy casualties and due to sacrifices offered by the Afghan forces, had opted to target civilians --- a strategy that shows their weakness.

Praising the sacrifices of all the security forces for protection of their motherland’s territorial integrity and their families for raising brave sons, the NSC said the enemies of the Afghans would not reach their desired goals by spreading terror.

The brave Afghan people, who have historically supported their security forces, would not let the enemy materialize their terrorist designs.

The statement said the Taliban’s inhuman attacks had multiplied people’s problems and who were already faced with drought and cold winter.

The NSC asked the security organs concerned to intensify their attacks on the enemy for protection of people’s lives and reducing casualties among security forces.
