Operation of Afghan security officials against the Taliban near the border with Turkmenistan is delayed

The operation against the Taliban in the north-west of Afghanistan in the immediate vicinity of the border with Turkmenistan is delayed due to the fact that the gangsters are hiding behind the backs of local residents, said the country's vice president Abdul Rashid Dostum.

According to him, militants use as a human shield for children and women.

“This is the complexity of the operation. It is very difficult in these conditions to distinguish the enemy from one another. We must avoid casualties among civilians and our soldiers. ”- quotes Dostum newspaper Look.

He said that "units of the ministries of defense and internal affairs of Afghanistan, as well as detachments of local self-defense forces, take part in the operation to eliminate militants of the Taliban in Jowzjan province."

According to the military department of the country, “during the combing of the terrain every house is checked, there are losses among the military personnel, as well as civilians”. Of course, there are losses among the Taliban.

The representative of the department noted that the militants "in order to divert government troops from Hamyab district, intensified in neighboring districts of Jowzjan province: Karkin, Mingajik and Akcha".

    There will be no sense in the operations of government Afghan forces. The creeping, slow capture by the Taliban of ever larger territories has been going on for a long time. Unfortunately, the central authorities of Afghanistan control only Kabul and the territories adjacent to it. The entire power operation of the West led to even greater chaos and the emergence in Afghanistan of not only Al Qaeda, but also ISIS units. In an interview with the media, Afghans, remembering the times of the presence of our troops there, recall how many roads, hospitals, schools and industrial enterprises we built. And about the Americans, not a single good word.
    We draw conclusions ...

      good attitude to RUSSIA

      Dear Alexei, Hafizulla Amin, was the only leader of Afghanistan who allowed himself to speak negatively about Russia. Everyone else, starting with Zakir-Shah, tried to maintain good neighborly relations with us and all, without exception, were respected. hi

    Of course it will not, if there is no desire, they would want to destroy the Taliban, they would have erased it to dust long ago, the Americans are holding it, because they cut so much dough on drugs.
