The ceremony, which was held in the wake of a special army operation, Khalid urged Afghan Special Forces to fight bravely and defend their country and eliminate terrorists in their nests. “Use America’s help and training in the right way, but never wait for their help in battlefields,” he said in his speech today while celebrating Special Forces graduation ceremony.
These statements come as the Taliban expanded their attacks following the announcement of their spring action under the name of Al Fath. But the country’s security and defense forces have also launched Khalid’s offensive operations in response to the Taliban attack and are trying to suppress the terrorists.
