16 Taliban return to insurgency in Sar-i-Pul

Feb 04, 2017 - 17:50

SAR-I-PUL (Pajhwok): A 16-member Taliban group has returned to the insurgency after joining the peace process in northern Sar-i-Pul province, a public representative claimed Saturday.

Mohammad Noor Rahmani, the provincial council head, told Pajhwok Afghan News the 16-member group, headed by Noor Mohammad, had been part of an uprising group after reconciliation before rejoining the insurgency.

He said the group switched sides due to government’s negligence in Sayad locality of the province. He said families of the mentioned insurgents lived in areas under Taliban control and that was why they rejoined the Taliban.

A security official, who declined to be identified, confirmed the incident and said Noor Mohammad surrendered to the Taliban with 12 Kalashnikovs, two pistols, nine motorcycles and one rocket launcher.
