Afghan military operations to remain in full swing in winter


The Afghan Defense Ministry said the country’s National Defense and Security Forces will continue their operations in the coming winter as they have “inclusive plans” on hand for this purpose.
“This time, we will continue our winter operations with full force, but we cannot provide details of these operations due to security reasons. You will soon witness large-scale operations,” said ministry’s Spokesman Ghafoor Ahmad Jawed, TOLOnews reported.
In a fresh spate of violence, at least three civilians among them two children and a woman were killed, and four others wounded when battle broke out between Afghan forces and Taliban fighters in Paktika-Gardez Highway.
The clash began after insurgents launched mortar attack on a convoy of Afghan forces in the area.
“Missiles were fired and then our beloved ones lost their lives,” said a local resident, Khawjah.
“Three people were killed and two or three others were wounded,” said Hussain, a Paktia resident.
Reports from other provinces also indicate that fresh waves of violence have occurred in some other parts of the country. “Operations are ongoing. We have outlined inclusive plans for a major operation. Meanwhile, operations will be carried out in districts which have lost their main centers over the past three years,” Ghazni Governor Wahidullah Kalimzai said.
