February 22 The Afghan Ministry of National Defense issued a statement on the 22nd, saying that the Afghan military launched an attack on Taliban strongholds in southern Kandahar province on the evening of the 21st, killing at least 10 militants, four of whom were foreigners.
The statement said that in the operation in the Argystan area of Kandahar Province, the military also destroyed a factory where Taliban militants made bombs, mines and improvised explosive devices.
The Taliban has not yet responded to the military’s statement.
The Afghan government and the Taliban launched peace talks in Qatar on September 12, 2020.
The negotiations are slow due to many differences. At the same time, the conflict between the two sides has not stopped.
Taliban militants frequently attack the army, police, officials and government agencies, and the government has not relaxed its attacks on militants.
