The Police Chief of Kandahar warned of retaliation while strongly reacting to repeated violations by Taliban amid commitments to reduce violence over a period of one week.
Gen. Tadin Khan in a statement said the security forces fully adhered to Reduction in Violence agreement in southern Kandahar.
However, he said the Taliban militants have repeatedly violated the agreement during the past two days and attacked the convoys of the security forces in three districts.
He also added that the security forces were returning from Shorabak, Shawali Kot adn Maruf districts, respecting the Reduction of Violence agreement but the Taliban militants repeatedly attacked their convoy.
Emphasizing that the security forces would welcome all peace efforts, Gen. Tadin Khan said the security forces are determined to fully retaliate if the militants continued to violate the agreement of reducing violence.
