Officials say at least 12 individuals who were part of various criminal activities in different parts of the country, were arrested through security raids in the regions.

Interior Ministry tweeted, “12 suspects involved in different criminal cases were arrested during several separate raids of the ANP in Khost, Ghazni, Herat & Parwan provinces. The arrestees’ files have been referred for further investigation to the related departments”

On the other hand, afghan national police personnel carried out several reconnaissance operations around the country.

The ministry also indicates that security personnel conducted several reconnaissance operations in Sar-e-Pul, Paktika, Badakhshan and Nangarhar provinces to prevent civilian casualties and ensure better security.

During the operation, 10 Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) were defused, which prevented many lives from serious harm.

MOI claims these mines recently found were aimed to carry out terrorist activities by the Taliban militants.
