Eight militants die in US strike in Afghanistan

Eight militants die in US strike in Afghanistan”

Chief Executive Officer (CEO) on Monday during the cabinet council meeting said that Taliban recently announced spring offensive, but they will fail this year again.

The Afghan National Security Forces are not doing well in the fight against the Taliban since end of the USA combat mission in 2014.

As the Taliban is seen to freely exercise control over most key territories in the ravaged nation, reports indicate that as long as Washington continues to wage war in Afghanistan, monies urgently needed to support popular USA social programs and rebuild America's weakening infrastructure will continue to be unavailable.

The Donald Trump administration is considering plans to deploy as many as 5,000 additional American troops to Afghanistan, a move that could signal a strategy shift years after the USA officially ended its combat mission in the country, officials say. He says the Taliban briefly overrun much of the district but that security forces recaptured lost ground after a short while amid heavy fighting with the insurgents.

'Taliban will be failure as past years at the current year, ' said CEO Abdullah Abdullah.

A senior Afghan defense official also told the Military Times that North Atlantic Treaty Organisation was considering deploying up to 13,000 troops into the country.

U.S. Secretary of Defense James Mattis, who visited the country last week, has said that the Trump administration is reviewing U.S. policy toward Afghanistan.

On April 13, the USA dropped a Massive Ordnance Air Blast bomb - nicknamed the "mother of all bombs" - the largest non-nuclear explosive in its arsenal, on Islamic State positions in Nangarhar province.

The Taliban-led insurgency in Afghanistan has continued to inflict "shockingly high" casualties on government forces and brought more territory under its control or influence, a USA government agency said Monday.

A statement from Resolute Support Headquarters in Kabul confirmed the report.

SIGAR investigations of USA contractors and military officials over the past several months have resulted in three criminal charges, two convictions, one sentencing, and a civil settlement of $40 million, according to the report, which noted that corruption investigations continue to grow. Without donor assistance, the International Monetary Fund estimated Afghanistan's current-account deficit equivalent to 36.6% of GDP ($6.7 billion) in 2016. "We have to restructure the mission to provide more training and air support".
