AT Monitoring Desk-KABUL: The Ministry of Defense (MoD) on Tuesday assured of ramping up security within a month in the country as insecurity has been intensified recently.
Dawlat Waziri, the spokesman to MoD, said that security situation will change in the next two or three weeks and recently 14 anti-militant operations are being conducted in 11 provinces in a bid to establish writ of the government in insecure parts of the country.
More troops will be deployed to the insecure areas, he said. However he added that his ministry has made comprehensive plans for next year’s spring offensive against the Taliban and other insurgent outfits.
Atiqullah Amarkhel, military affairs expert, told Tolonews that those areas once cleared of insurgents must not fall again to the militants. He said the government should adopt an effective plan for maintaining security in these areas.
Security officials say that currently the Taliban insurgents control eight districts in the country.
