US drone strikes violate peace accord: Taliban

Jul 17, 2020 - 13:29

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Talibaninfo-icon on Friday said the US violated the peace agreement by carrying out drone strikes in three provinces.

The complaint from Taliban comes days after the US called a Taliban attack in northern Samangan province as a violation of their pledges.

Taliban political office spokesman in Qatar, Sohail Shaheen, tweeted that the US by carrying out drone strikes in Ghazni, Zabul and Helmand had violated the peace agreement.

Shaheen said the drone strikes were carried out in non-combat areas. “Such strikes are not acceptable to the emirates,” he said.

US peace envoy Zalmay Khalilzad condemned the Taliban attack in Aibak, the capital of Samangan. The car bomb and gun attack on the intelligence office killed 11 people and injured 63 more.
