After the Afghan President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani ordered the Afghan forces to shift from defensive position to active offensive position and resume their attacks against the Taliban militants, the group said they were fully ready for any offensives, and for a ramped up violence the Afghan government will be responsible.
Zabihullah Mujahed, a spokesman for the armed Taliban In Qatar in a recent statement condemned Tuesday’s attacks in a maternity clinic in west of Kabul city and in a funeral ceremony in the eastern Nangarhar province and called it the work of ISIS (ISIL) militias in the country.
He accused the Afghan government for being involved behind such attacks in the country, claiming that “Ghani’s Administration” finds its survival in the war.
Since a peace deal was struck between the United States and the armed group, “Ghani’s Administration” has been creating hurdles to advancement of the peace process and “intentionally” delaying the prisoner swap process which could have paved the way for implementation of the peace deal, starting the intra-Afghan negotiations and saving lives of thousands of prisoners from the risk of COVID-19, Mujahed added in the statement.
Reacting to President Ghani’s recent order for an active offensive position, Mujahed said the group was ready for any offensive movements, adding that the “Kabul Administration” will only be responsible for any scaled up hostilities.
The statement came hours after the Afghan President Ashraf Ghani ordered the security and defense forces to shift from defensive position to active offensive position following Kabul and Nangarhar’s deadly attacks on Tuesday.Follow TKG on Twitter & Facebook
