AT-KABUL: Taliban, the Haqqani terrorist network and the Daesh terrorist group are waging a psychological war against the people and government, an official said Monday, claiming that the militants were unable to fight the national security forces.
“Both Taliban and Daesh militants were defeated by ANSF in every operation and now they launch psychological war to divert people’s minds,” Tawab Gorzan, spokesman for the National Security Council said.
“Taliban and Haqqani terrorist network use all possible propaganda tools to change the public view against government, but they failed in their plot.”
He added that Taliban and Haqqani network launch all their propaganda activities in Pakistan against Afghan government.
Presidential Spokesman Dawa Khan Minapal said that Taliban failed to take six provinces and 60 districts last year, adding that the security forces had good experience from last year’s war and were ready to defend the territory.
President Ashraf Ghani ordered last week the security organs to fight seriously against militants and suppress them in every nook and corner, an unprecedented move following a deadly suicide attack in Kabul that killed and injured dozens of security officers two weeks ago.
So far the Afghan National Army launched the Shafaq military operation against armed insurgents in multiple provinces of the country.
According to Minapal, the operation has been efficacious against armed terrorists and imposed heavy casualties for the enemies.
