Country facing brutal, absurd conflict: Ghani


Country facing brutal, absurd conflict: Ghani

Mar 10, 2018 - 17:13

KABUL (Pajhwok): President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani has said the tactic of battle has changed and Afghanistan was currently faced with and ill-founded and brutal war but security forces have restricted nefarious designs of the enemy despite challenges.

The president ruled out doubt over the bravery of security forces and added security forces should act cleverly because their task was the protection of people. He was addressing a gathering to inaugurate a joint headquarters of Reaction Force Unit of National Directorate of Security (NDS) and Special Police Force Unit.

The president said: “The operations of Special Police Force Unit were of high importance because you have penetrated in the heart of the enemy. You are the loins of Afghanistan and whenever the enemy sees you, they escape like fox, you protect the lives and wealth of people.”

The president said: “Officers of the NDS are committed to the rule of law and there is no place for inhuman acts, torture and abuse in the intelligence agency, you are the people who could not be accused of inhuman acts and torture because you are committed to national values and don’t forget that you are the real sons of this country.”

The president added the tactic of battle has changed and the current war was imposed on Afghans. “Currently we are fighting a baseless, brutal and boundless war and I want to thank security forces that they often barred the enemy to get to their targets.”

The president said the security situation of the country was moving towards stability but the problems and challenges still existed.

Referring to the achievement of Special Force Unit, NDS Director Mohammad Masoum Stanikzai said: “The Special Unit force was able to free tens of kidnapped people from captivity and rescued hundreds others from killing, abduction and other unfortunate incidents.”
