Defense ministry spokesman Qais Mangal said: “Major changes will take place in several parts of the military, we hope that by making these changes the security forces can be more aggressive to suppress the terrorists.”
The spokesman for Afghan Defense ministry has also said: “These changes have been made in the combat command, anti-corruption field, and are supposed to be built for a unitary command structure, alongside national army forces, in terms of civilian casualties Would also be dramatically reduced, preserving the presidential election, and raising the military’s capacity from other plans that are already scheduled for 1398.”
