Taliban attacks down as Afghanistan ‘reduction in violence’ deal holds | The Defense Post

Must Read

A seven-day long reduction of violence truce is currently holding out after four days. While the agreement only covers certain areas, there has been a significant decline in violence and attacks throughout these regions. If the truce holds, the next step is for the U.S. and the Taliban to sign a deal on Saturday that would see thousands of troops withdraw from Afghanistan. Since the truce, the average number of attacks has fallen from 75 a day to only 15 since February 22nd. Other terror groups complicate peace deals however, as allegiances change and break off while remaining affiliated with others. The current deal to withdraw some U.S. troops will still leave thousands within Afghanistan to combat other terror organizations.
