US hides information on Taliban attacks in Afghanistan

KABUL, Afghanistan: For the first time, the US Military Mission in Afghanistan has refused to officially publish data on the attacks carried out in the Country by the Taliban which whom Washington inked a peace deal in Doha in late February, Eurasia Diary reported.

The initiative by the US administration seems to be in compliance with the terms of the agreement reached with the Afghan Taliban which also included the withdrawal of the foreign troops from the war-torn Country.

The Head of International Observers John F. Sopko said that the information about the Taliban attack was one of the few evidence that can be used in security reports in Afghanistan.

According to the Office of the Country’s National Security Adviser, since the conclusion of the peace treaty on February 29, militants have made 2804 attacks on government forces.

The Ministry of Defense of Afghanistan reported 10-15 cases of violence by terrorists daily.

The Pentagon Spokesman Thomas Campbell also insists on the importance of publicizing Taliban attacks.

According to him, in March, these incidents “exceeded all seasonal norms.” The recorded data could be used in international discussions about compliance by the rebels with the terms of the agreement, Campbell is sure.
