Three-day ceasefire declared by Taliban in Afghanistan

The Taliban  has declared a three-day ceasefire in Afghanistan to mark this week’s Eid al-Fitr holiday. This declaration comes after the school bombing incident that killed many girl students. 

“Mujahideen of the Islamic Emirate are instructed to halt all offensive operations against the enemy countrywide from the first till the third day of Eid,” a statement released by the insurgents said. 

“But if the enemy conducts any assault or attack against you during these days, stand ready to robustly protect and defend yourselves and your territory,” it added.
