Afghanistan: Taliban announce start of spring offensive in Afghanistan


The Afghan Taliban made the announcement on Tuesday in an email sent to media organizations around the world.

Every year the insurgent group declares the beginning of its “spring offensive” - the warm-weather fighting season - although this year the Taliban continued fighting in winter without a seasonal break.

This year’s offensive, which began at 5 a.m. local time (0030 UTC), has been named “Operation Omari” in honor of the late Taliban founder Mullah Mohammad Omar. In the emailed announcement, the insurgents promised to “employ large-scale attacks on enemy positions across the country,” including suicide bombings.

New wave of attacks

The Taliban also threatened to carry out attacks on Afghan police and soldiers, whom they referred to as “stooges” of the West.
