MEHWAR: Govt Sees ‘Significant Drop in Violence’ After Ceasefire
There has been a significant drop in the Taliban’s attacks since the group announced a ceasefire with the Afghan forces during the three days of Eid that were celebrated from Sunday, May 24 to Tuesday, May 26, Afghan security officials said.
Security sources within the Afghan government said that before the Eid ceasefire, the Taliban were initiating almost 100 attacks daily across the nation, but now these attacks have been reduced to six minor attacks per day.
The ceasefire by the Taliban was intended to expedite the process of the prisoner swap between the two sides.
