The Taliban will show no will for peace and will not get back to the negotiating table unless the situation changes on the battlefield, President Ashraf Ghani said, reiterating that the group has changed compared to 20 years ago, but the change has been negative, and they have become more “cruel."

Addressing an event at the inauguration of what the Presidential Palace termed "electronic governance," Ghani highlighted the importance of the implementation of his six-month plan and said one part of it includes public mobilization for defending the system under the leadership of the National Directorate of Security.

Officials at an army corps base in Zabul province in southern Afghanistan illegally sold at least 300,000 liters of Afghan forces' aviation gasoline at local markets, and then created a cover story that the fuel was lost in a rocket attack at their base, said sources. 

Abdul Ghafoor Hotaki, the commander of Zabul garrison, and Sefatullah, the commander of the 2nd regiment of the Afghan Army’s Atal Corps, were allegedly involved in the sale. These two officials sold 300,000 liters of fuel that was kept in storage tanks reserved for the second regiment and was intended for use by the security forces, said sources from security agencies and from Zabul.
