Afghan govt ends ceasefire with Taliban

AFP

KABUL: Afghan security forces resumed offensive operations yesterday after President Ashraf Ghani declared an end to the government's unilateral ceasefire with the Taliban, reports AFP.

Ghani said the ceasefire, which lasted 18 days after it was extended once and overlapped with the Taliban's unilateral three-day truce for Eid, had been "98 percent successful".

"The ceasefire is over. The Afghan security and defence forces are allowed to restart their military operations," Ghani told reporters.

The three days of no fighting were unprecedented in the nearly 17-year conflict and triggered jubilant scenes across the war-weary country.
