Spokesman of MoI has declared that Afghan forces put further pressures on the armed oppositions that they fail to have the capability to launch offensive against our forces in the upcoming season.

“The main target is to press the enemies. The enemies should not have the ability of mobility and maneuverability in the upcoming spring season. The results are good,” said Sidiq Sidiqi, spokesman of MoI.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of National Defense says nearly 21 operations are underway to suppress the terrorist groups in 18 provinces of the country.

“Those training centers of terrorist groups must be destroyed. The “Shafaq” operations is continuing for this purpose and we expect the next year will be a better year,” said Muhammad Radmanish, deputy spokesman of MoD.

The lack of necessary management between the military forces in the first line of the battle has been criticized by the Afghan Parliament.

Ministry of Defense claims that the war strategy has been changed and the insurgents group will face failure in the upcoming year.
