Afghanistan announces end of truce with Taliban

Afghan President Ashraf Ghani announced the end of the truce with the radical Islamist movement Taliban, which lasted from June 12. This on June 30 reports Deutsche Welle.

Now the Afghan army can resume all military operations against the Taliban.

Earlier, the President of Afghanistan announced a unilateral ceasefire from 12 to 19 June in connection with the celebration of the end of Ramadan, then the truce was extended until 29 June.

In turn, the leaders of the radical Taliban movement declared their readiness to observe the truce only during the three festive days of June 15-17. However, during the truce in Afghanistan, several bloody attacks were committed with dozens of dead, including the Taliban members themselves.

On June 17, the Taliban announced their refusal to respect the truce announced by Kabul. Over the past week, more than 60 representatives of the Afghan security forces have died as a result of Taliban attacks.
