MoD Accuses Taliban of Violating Eid Ceasefire

Kabul: At least 40 people have been killed and wounded in separate Taliban attacks in nearly 10 provinces in the country despite a previous commitment by the group to halt fighting during the three days of Eid ceasefire, said the Ministry of Defense (MoD) on Saturday.

“Mullah Hibatullah (Taliban’s supreme leader) has no authority on all factions of the group and his loyalists are not abiding by his orders,” said Defense Ministry spokesman Rohullah Ahmadzai.

Taliban has rejected the allegations and has blamed the government for not honoring its ceasefire commitments.
