Taking advantage of the season, recently the terrorist groups have geared up their terrorist and destructive activities across the country. As per reports terrorists launch offensives against security forces check-posts and other government compounds, plotting roadside bombs and conducting suicide attacks at public places and mosques, targeting Afghan and US-led NATO forces and then take shelters in the eastern and southern hostile neighborhood of Afghanistan. This is a sacred fact that Afghan National Security Forces continue to battle militants on multiple fronts across the country and rendering highest level of sacrifices. Viewing this, there is a serious need for the Afghan and US-led NATO forces to hit militants in their strongholds and safe sanctuaries in a bid to establish durable peace and stability, not only in heart of Asia, but in the region as well. It is responsibility of the US and NATO member countries to force the hostile neighbors of Afghanistan to shun terror factories and sheltering terrorist outfits. Keeping in view the ground realities, the Afghan people would not remain silent spectators against the ongoing bloodshed, insecurity, instability, poverty and double standards by our foreign allies and neighbors.
