Air strikes, special operations decreasing security threats, MoD
 Officials in Ministry of National Defense (MoD) say currently security threats have decreased in most of provinces and districts in the country due to launching military operations and implementing security programs by the country’s defense and security forces who are trying to maintain security across the country.
Gen. Sharif Yaftali, ANA chief of general staff says after US new strategy for Afghanistan and South Asia and conducting military operations in volatile districts of the country, threats level have decreased from 122 to 88 districts.
“Currently, armed insurgents have preferred the explosions and suicide attacks rather than to fight face to face with Afghan security forces and small fighting is ongoing in 88 districts of the country,” said Gen. Yaftali.
According to MoD chief of general staff, air strikes and launching special operations are considered as successes of ANA forces in current year and the issue has caused that security personnel’s casualties decrease comparing to last year.
He further said that during fall season the country’s defense and security forces were focusing on targeting leaders and commanders of terrorist groups, maintaining security in volatile areas, security of highways and retaking areas which were under control of Taliban insurgents.
Related to terrorists’ safe havens, Gen. Yaftali said that terrorist ministry, groups have shifted their safe havens from bordering areas to other safe areas of Pakistan after US new strategy See P3...
 for Afghanistan and giving further air strike authorizations to US troops in Afghanistan.
Meanwhile, senior deputy minister of security affairs for interior Gen. Murad Ali Murad while pointing to launching operations and threats level in the country said enemies of the people of Afghanistan have tried their best to capture districts in remote areas of the country in the past seven years, but they have continually faced with serious resistance of Afghan defense and security forces.
“Currently, ANP forces are stationed in 365 districts and engaged in law enforcement activities,” said Gen. Murad, adding that MoI has taken further steps towards bringing reforms in the ministry and logistics section of the police force.
Hadi Khalid, former deputy minister of interior says fortunately Afghanistan is now in good position in the  region and in the world as the international community in particular the US is very interested in cooperating the country in maintaining security. He stressed that creating better coordination among security organs and having strong determination in connection with maintaining security would cause increasing of hopes among the people of Afghanistan and decreasing security personnel’s casualties in battlefields.
Related to maintaining security and attacks of enemies, Amir Mohammad, another Afghan military expert said security organs of the country have tried their best to tighten security and repulse most of attacks organized and launched by armed insurgents, but unfortunately there was still duty negligence in a number of security posts causing casualties of security forces.
It is now determined that the international community in particular the US are committed to cooperating and supporting Afghanistan government in counter terrorism effort so that the country can reach stability and security.
