Kabul (BNA) Security problems in the country particularly in Sar-e-Pul, Jawzjan, Kunar and Farah province have caused people concern.
In case of insecurity, ANSF are addressed to focus essential attention to ensure people security. ISIL activities have increased in some districts of those provinces and even passengers on high ways are not save of terrorist activities. Supplies take place to ISIL centers. According to MoD authorities, at present cordon and search operations are going on in different insecure parts and produced positive outcomes. Spokesman of MoD, BG Dawlat Waziri said that ANSF suppress terrorists across Afghanistan. At present 16 operations are underway in 14 provinces with the participation of air forces and commando troops. ANSF are capable to carryout complicated operations as a result of which hundreds armed terrorists have been eliminated and exterminated and large quantities of their war fares have been confiscated by ANSF.
ANSF should be further improved and serious steps should be taken in this direction. ANA, ANP soldiers should be increased and should be equipped with modern weapons and technology and receive update training. Our air and ground forces should be capable to preserve independence, freedom and our national sovereignty beside war on terror.
Procurements including supply of ammunition, medicine, food, clothes etc… play effective role in professionalism of troops that should be particularly concentrated. Lack of air forces and ground troop’s essential equipment are the main challenges. New helicopters are expected to be given to our nascent air forces. The US is involved to study a plan based on which additional military forces will be deployed in Afghanistan that would support our native forces and they would be encouraged to target terrorists.
This may be the last chance to Afghanistan and if in this chance the Taliban problem is not be solved once and for ever, no hope would remain for peace with this group and peace would be changed to an inaccessible dream. What is the solution to prevent civilian casualties? ANSF have always been trying to prevent civilian causalities as far as possible. But some times during war it happens that civilians are damaged but often it happen by insurgents.

Kabul (BNA) Afghanistan is arming hundreds of civilians nationwide to help protect mosques during one of the holiest months on the Islamic calendar after several deadly attacks on Shiite religious sites.
The government's move comes as it considers a similar proposal to arm 20,000 villagers to fight Islamist militants, highlighting the impotence of Afghanistan's army and police in beating back insurgents and stemming the bloody violence.
The extra protection for mosques was announced on the website of Second Vice President Sarwar Danish. It also involves the deployment during the mourning month of Muharram of more troops and police around places of worship, particularly those of the Shiite Muslim minority.
Shiites, who number around three million in overwhelmingly Sunni Afghanistan, have regularly been targeted by Islamic State jihadists and accuse police and troops of failing to protect them.
"After the recent unfortunate incidents the people should not rely on security forces alone to provide them protection. The people, especially the youth, in their respective areas, need to focus on securing the mosques during the Muharram days," Danish said after a meeting with top security officials and Shiite leaders on Monday.
Muharram, beginning this week, marks the start of the Islamic New Year and the mourning period for the seventh century killing of the prophet's grandson.
The holy day of Ashura, which falls on the 10th day of Muharram, is a key date.
Acting Interior Minister Wais Barmak said the training of "hundreds of people" recruited by the ministry to protect mosques had almost finished.
They will support the additional forces to be deployed around "sacred places". "Measures have been taken to distribute weapons, salaries and other necessary means to the newly recruited people," Barmak said, according to the statement. IS in the past 14 months has claimed a series of attacks which killed scores of Shiites. There were two major assaults on Shiite mosques in August alone. In Kabul a suicide bomber and gunmen stormed a building during Friday prayers, killing 28 people and wounding scores more. Earlier in the month an IS attack on a Shiite mosque in the western city of Herat left 33 worshippers dead and 66 wounded.
In July 2016 twin explosions ripped through crowds of Shiite Hazaras in Kabul, killing more than 80 people and wounding hundreds more.
