Officials in Herat say that the National Directorate of Security (NDS) forces have been able to prevent another bloody event in the province. According to a Herat official report, the National Security Forces in Herat arrested one person on charges of transferring an anti-personnel mine that was commissioned by the Taliban to target the country’s security forces in the east of Afghanistan.
The man was allegedly arrested by the national security forces during the transfer of the mine to the city. Herat is one of the relatively safe provinces in the west, but sometimes the Taliban attempt to disrupt the security situation in the province by launching terrorist attacks in the center of the province.
