The Taliban group on Wednesday announced the start of the new spring offensive as the group emphasizes that the new offensive is being announced in response to the new US strategy that paves the way for the deployment of thousands of more foreign troops.
The group in a statement said the offensive (Al-Khandaq) operations will kick off across the country from today to target the foreign and Afghan forces as well as the government.
Taliban claims that certain parts of the country are still in control of the foreign forces and the announcement of the new strategy by President Trump has paved the way for the deployment of thousands more troops to Afghanistan.
