U.S. commander sees ANDSF improving in battle

AT-KABUL: A senior U.S. commander says Afghan security forces are improving in the battlefield but require time and support to face the Taliban and Islamic State combatants.

General Joseph L Votel, Commander of U.S. Central Command in a press briefing on Thursday said the Afghan National Defense and Security Forces were fighting and they are taking casualties, but they are also very offensive-minded, inflicting losses on the Taliban and Daesh, while expanding their capabilities and proficiency every day.

The chief said that all six Afghan National Army corps have been frequently engaged in offensive operations simultaneously, pointing out that at one point this spring they were conducting offensive operations in 13 of Afghanistan’s 34 provinces.
