On Tuesday, the Taliban warns Turkey against the plan of keeping soldiers in Afghanistan to guard and run the main airport of Kabul after the foreign troop’s withdrawal. The Taliban called the strategy a reprehensible approach and gave Turkey the warning of being prepared to bear the consequences if they did not change the decision. Anakara, which made a proposal to guard and run the Kabul Airport after the withdrawal of NATO, is rumored to support the United States on political, financial, and logistical aspects.
In a statement, the terrorist group said that the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan criticizes the reprehensible decision. The Taliban added that in case the Turkish officers did not reconsider the decision and go ahead with the country’s occupation, the Islamic Emirate will counter them. Moreover, it added, those who will interfere are likely to bear the responsibilities of the consequences.
The foreign forces’ departure is the main reason for the increase in strength of the Taliban. They are now putting in force to surround cities and gradually gain the territories.
A senior leader said that the Taliban doesn’t want to fight against the government forces within the cities of Afghanistan. However, it wants them to surrender themselves.
Hours after the message of Amir Khan Muttaqi, a blast happened at the Afghan capital’s center. In the blast, four civilians were killed and five injured.
