As the Taliban has put CCTV cameras at crossroads in an attempt to improve security, the group has asked Kabul residents to install security cameras in their houses.
The Taliban-controlled Afghanistan National Television broadcasted an interview with the spokesperson of the Taliban Kabul Police Chief Office, Khalid Zadran, on Thursday, November 10.
In the interview, Khalid Zadran stated that the Taliban has begun a campaign to install security cameras around Kabul city and that about 2,000 CCTV cameras have already been set up in several areas of the city’s police district 15.
According to Khalid Zadran, the Taliban security officials have initiated this campaign as an attempt and effort to improve the security situation, starting from the capital of Afghanistan, Kabul.
In the interview with National TV, Khaled Zadran asked Kabul citizens to install security cameras in their houses as a sign of their participation in providing and preserving security.
He emphasized that as the campaign is not mandatory, only households with the necessary financial resources could participate to install security cameras and that those without the resources were not obligated to do the installation.
This comes as many countries in the international community are growing concerned about the resurgence of terrorists and terrorist activities in Afghanistan, while criminality and reports of criminal acts have increased since the Taliban took control.
