Winter security operations plan is ready: Waziri

Winter security operations plan is ready: Waziri

Oct 30, 2017 - 20:20

KABUL (Pajhwok): The Afghan Ministry of Defense on Monday said the plan for winter operations has been prepared and will be announced and implemented soon.

MoD spokesman Dawlat Waziri told a press conference in Kabul that areas so far reclaimed from insurgents would be secured and the forces would be equipped with advanced weapons.

He said main objectives of the winter security plan were training the military, equipping and rehabilitating military units which had been affected by the conflict and conducting nighttime and strong raids in areas of high security threats.

He said the Afghan commando and air force had been strengthened compared to the past, causing more losses to the enemy and reducing enemy activity by 50 percent.

As a result, he said, the rebels had switched to suicide attacks and planting landmines on roads.
