Afghanistan Helmand Province under Threat of Taliban Occupation

Monday 21 December 2015
Afghanistan Helmand Province under Threat of Taliban Occupation

Alwaght- The deputy provincial governor for southern Helmand province of Afghanistan Mohammad Jan Rasoulyar has warned that the region might fall to Taliban terrorists if the central government fails to take immediate action.

In an online post addressed to President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani, Rasoulyar warned that Helmand will soon fall to Taliban terrorists. According to Rasoulyar, the Afghan forces suffered casualties during clashes in Greshk and Sangin districts adding that around 90 Afghan soldiers have lost their lives during the past 2 days as violence soars in the restive province.

Appealing directly to President Ghani for his intervention to prevent the collapse of Helmand province, Rasoulyar said it would be impossible to retake Helmand province by launching an operation from airport and it would be dream to compare it with northern Kunduz province which was retaken by the security forces.

He said he is not ready to pay a huge price, urging President Ghani to be quick and save Helmand from life and death situation.

Helmand is among the volatile provinces in southern Afghanistan where anti-government militants and Takfiri terrorists groups are actively operating in its various districts and frequently carry out insurgency activities.

The highly unusual public plea from a serving official painted a picture strikingly similar to the situation that led up to the fall of the northern city of Kunduz in late September, when Taliban terrorists seized and held on to for several days before government troops regained control.

Army spokesman Mohammad Rasool Zazai said he had no comment on the post, but said Helmand would never collapse, while police chief Abul Rahman Sarjang said: "We have strong forces in Helmand. In some places, we leave areas for tactical reasons, but all forces are working together well and very soon we will have major achievements to report."

Afghanistan is gripped by insecurity nearly 14 years after the United States and its allies attacked the country in 2001 as part of Washington’s so-called war on terror.
