The Afghan security forces have stepped up counter-terrorism operations to suppress the insurgency activities of the terror groups.

The security officials are saying the Afghan forces will continue to maintain pressures against the terror groups as they continue to step up attacks against the Afghan forces and civilians.

The operations by the Afghan security forces are being conducted as part of the Shafaq annual offensive which was launched late in March in response to the growing insurgency activities led by the Taliban group.
