TAWDE KHABARE: Taliban to Release All 1,000 Prisoners by Eid
Suhail Shaheen, a spokesman for the Taliban's Qatar office, in a tweet on Wednesday night said that in order to show "goodwill," the Taliban will release the remaining government prisoners--of the 1,000 pledged--by Eid.
"The other side must also complete the process of releasing the pledged 5,000 detainees in accordance with the Doha Agreement, and the list, in order to facilitate the start of intra-Afghan talks after Eid," Shaheen said.
25 government forces detainees were released by the Taliban in Baghlan and Logar provinces and were sent to their families, Shaheen also tweeted on Wednesday.
Under the US-Taliban peace deal that was signed in Doha, the Afghan government would release 5,000 Taliban members, of which it has so far released more than 4,400. And the Taliban would release 1,000, of which it has released over 800.
