Kabul: The Taliban terror group on Monday resumed attacks on Afghan security forces after the armed outfit’s three-day ceasefire ended the previous night, police said.

Taliban terrorists launched early morning attacks on security checkpoints in Ghormach, Qaisar, Pashtunkot

Taliban terrorists launched early morning attacks on security checkpoints in Ghormach, Qaisar, Pashtunkot and Shirin Tagab districts and sporadic fighting has been continuing.

The Afghanistan government announced a ceasefire from June 12 to June 19 to encourage the Taliban to support the national reconciliation process.

Reciprocating the step, the terror group announced a three-day truce from Friday, the first day of Eid-ul-Fitr, till Sunday midnight.

On Sunday, an Afghan Security Council meeting chaired by President Ashraf Ghani extended the ceasefire for another 10 days.

However, the terrorist outfit refused to extend the ceasefire and instead in an online statement released overnight Sunday asked its fighters to resume fighting against Afghan and foreign forces stationed in Afghanistan.
