Iran ready to help Afghanistan fight terror: Defense chief

Iran ready to help Afghanistan in fighting terrorism Defense Minister

In a response to a recent letter from the Taliban to the U.S., the Trump team has ruled out withdrawing troops from Afghanistan, a pre-condition set by the rebels for talks.

In December, dozens of people were killed in a suicide attack on a Shi'ite cultural centre claimed by Islamic State, and two months earlier two separate mosque attacks killed at least 72 people.

In another incident, seven people were killed when a suicide bomber blew himself up in Kabul.

Afghan President Ashraf Ghani said this while addressing the 2nd Kabul Process Conference which is being attended by representatives from more than 20 countries.

"Suicide attacks are a part of our daily life that we see but can't do anything about", said Hayad, who uses only one name, and is a resident of the Hazara neighbourhood where the explosion took place.

Most Hazaras are Shia Muslims, and Sunni militants consider all Shia heretics and urge followers to kill them.

The spokesman for the Health Ministry, Wahid Majro, said several of the wounded were in critical condition and he feared that the death toll could rise.

According to The Associated Press, the Taliban are believed responsible for "a deadly assault overnight on an army outpost in a remote region of Afghanistan's northern Takhar province, killing six soldiers and wounding five in a blistering hours-long attack, Defense Ministry spokesman Dawlat Waziri said".

The spokesman for the Pakistani Taliban says the son of their chief, Mullah Fazlullah, was among 21 "holy warriors" killed this week when missiles fired by a USA drone struck a seminary in Afghanistan. He claimed the Taliban had inflicted a far higher number of casualties but the insurgents often exaggerate their claims. The report could not be independently confirmed because of the area's remoteness.
