Taliban killed 291 Afghan security personnel in one week: govt
KABUL: In Afghanistan, Taliban have killed at least 291 Afghan security personnel over the past week.
Spokesman of the Afghan National Security Council, in a Tweet, said that the Taliban carried out 422 attacks in 32 provinces during the past week, killing 291 security force personnel and wounding 550 others.
He said this showed that Taliban’s commitment to reduce violence was meaningless, and their actions were inconsistent with their rhetoric on peace.
Meanwhile, Taliban Spokesperson Zabihullah Mujahid has rejected the latest government figures.
He said the enemy aimed to hurt the peace process and intra-Afghan talks by releasing such false reports.
