Afghan special forces operations surpass 3,000 this year | Stripes

Responding to increasing attacks, Afghan special forces so far this year have conducted more than 3,000 operations against the Taliban and terrorist organizations such as the Islamic State group, government officials said. But they say it will take much more effort to defeat the militants.

“We have carried out these operations according to the capacity of our forces,” Gen. Mohammad Radmanish, deputy spokesman for the Afghan Defense Ministry, said Saturday. “It’s a lot for us, but not enough to fully eliminate the enemy.”
