Gen. Dostum In Jawzjan To Fight Taliban

The first Vice-President, General Abdul Rashid Dostum leading a delegation has rushed to the northern Jawzjan to prevent Taliban from overrunning Aqcha district, local officials confirmed.

Gen. Dostum in meeting with a number of the inhabitants of the Aqcha district urged them to stand against Taliban.

“Be strong and stand shoulder to shoulder. We stand beside our soldiers and move toward Faryab and Sar-e Pul. There will be no sign of them in three months,” Dostum said.

He added that the current situation was shared with President Ashraf Ghani and Gen. Scott Miller, the US and NATO commander in Afghanistan and a new operation will be started in Jawzjan.
