The three-day ceasefire observed by both the Afghan government and the Taliban in honor of Eid-ul-Fitr ended at midnight on Tuesday; however, neither the government in Kabul nor the Taliban have announced an end to the ceasefire or an extension.
But a government source on condition of anonymity said that an unofficial ceasefire will continue in the country.
Some released Taliban prisoners claimed they would choose peace and stability "at least for now," as 328 of them were released from the Pul-e-Charkhi prison on Tuesday.
TOLOnews reporter Zahra Rahimi interviewed five of them. One of them, Sayed Anwar Khairat, was nicknamed “Mr. Manager” by other prisoners. He did not mention what role he had among the Taliban but he said he was arrested by the National Directorate of Security forces in Paktika province eight years ago on charges of cooperation with the group.
