The situation in Afghanistan will improve in 6 months, says Afghanistan President

The situation in Afganistan will improve in 6 months, says Afganistan President

In Afghanistan, the Taliban has captured dozens of districts, seized more land, and taken control of key border crossings with neighboring countries as US and Nato troops pull out of the country and situation in Afganistan will improve in 6 months

President of Afghanistan Ashraf Ghani said the violence-hit country's situation would improve within the next six months. He emphasized that the security of cities is my government's first primary. Addressing a virtual meeting, Ghani said that the Taliban has become "more cruel and more harsh" in the last 20 years.

Ghani said

"They don't have wish for peace, for prosperity, or progress; we want peace but they won't surrender. They will don't take part in meaningful meeting unless the situation changes in battlefield; therefore, we should have a clear stand. For this, there is a need for countrywide mobilization,"

Ghani's statement came as Afghan forces bombed and fought Taliban positions and fighters on Sunday as the group mounted very offensives in major cities across the nation. The Taliban also attacked Kandahar airport, the Second-largest town in Afghanistan and former stronghold of the Taliban, with at least three rockets overnight.

Zabiullah Mujahid, a Taliban spokesperson, told Reuters.

"We targeted Kandahar airport because the enemy was using it as a centre to conduct airstrikes against us,"

Authorities suspend any flights out of Kandahar after the rockets hit the runway, partially damaging it. The flight operations were restoring afterward.

Taliban also attacked at least two other provincial capitals, including nearby Lashkar Gah in Helmand and Herat in the province. The government has also said that hundreds of Taliban terrorists have been killing by the Afghanistan National Defence and Security Forces (ANDSF). At least 200 hundred Taliban fighters were killed in an airstrike by a B-52 aircraft of the US air force in Herat province.

Afghanistan security forces have lead operations and counter-attacks against the Taliban in Ghazni, Kandahar, Farah, Jowzjan, Balkh, Samangan, Helmand, Takhar, Kunduz, Baghlan, Kabul, and Kapisa provinces and the situation in Afghanistan will improve in 6 months.

Ghani's remarks also came on the Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission (AIHRC) in a report that 1,677 civilians had been killing in action and 3,644 injured in the first six months of this year in 1,594 different security incidents. "Important to note that the total number of civilian casualties in the first six months of 2020 was 2,957, including 1,213 killed and 1,744 injured," AIHRC said in a report. "A comparison of the above mentioned figures shows that civilian casualties have increased by 80 percent in first six months of 2021 compared with the first six months of 2020," it added.
