Amrullah Saleh, Afghanistan’s first vice president, in his early morning meetings “6:30 am meetings” stated that the Taliban would not succeed in weakening the civil society with their targeted assassinations and IED blasts. 

He said that “Killing civilians for political gains, and for fulfilling foreign demands is a failed and an infamous strategy.”

Saleh added, that every single targeted assassination is conducted by the Taliban, they consider the civil society a pillar of protection and defense of the Republic.

In the last two months, targeted assassination has taken the lives of journalists, civil society activities, doctors, and government employees.

On the other hand, Amrullah Saleh, the first vice president, indicated Afghan security personnel were able to arrest some perpetrators of these targeted assassinations in accordance with the Security Pact program.

Saleh previously said during the 6:30 am meeting on Saturday, that three people have been arrested in connection with the assassination of FEFA CEO “Youssef Rashid”.
