MoD authorities have said that ANSF airstrikes have recently increased on terrorists’ strongholds in which their hideouts were targeted. Afghan Air Forces (AAF) managed to inflict decisive blows on terrorists and their large number of leaders and commanders were eliminated. These operations were launched in Nangarhar, Kunar, Ghazni, Maidan Wardak, Farah, Kandahar, Helmand and Badghis provinces.
The source added that air operations were coordinated with RS forces but managed and led by Afghans and efforts were made to avoid civilian casualties.
Prior to this the ANSF authorities had said that an average of 12 air strikes are conducted by AAF on daily bases.
As the ANSF have been talking on increasing airstrikes on terrorists positions, after taking over of president Trump, the US forces have also intensified their strikes on Taliban.
According to available reports, since Sept 2018 to early Feb 2019 the US-Afghan forces have carried out several joint coordinated ops for extermination of terrorists.
In his recent expressions on support of ANSF, president Ghani said that everybody who take weapon against the government, would be considered as the enemy of this country and must be eliminated.
In the wake of tasking of Assadulllah Khalid as acting MoD, the Afghan defence and security bodies have increased their activities for improvement of security and stability of Afghanistan.
Acting MoD Khalid has assured the Afghan people that he would try to provide better security for people and country. Welcoming Afghan-led peace efforts, he emphasized that those who don’t join peace process, ANSF would target them.
Simultaneous with launching of airstrikes for extermination of Taliban insurgents, peace efforts have also been intensified with this faction at national and intentional level. Different countries including the US, Russia, Turkey, Iran, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan are endeavoring to pave the way of direct talks between Taliban and the Afghan government.
Military, security experts believe that for better performing of operations, the ANSF must be further equipped so the Afghan government would have upper hand in the battlefields.
President Ghani has said that on our way to peace we are facing a devastating and bloody war that requires a decisive leadership and resolute management.
