News The Leftinistra Cannot Accept

A spate of suicide bombings targeting residents of the city of Khowst and other areas in Afghanistan have turned Afghans against the Taliban, Army Col. Martin Schweitzer, commander of the 82nd Airborne Division’s 4th Brigade Combat Team, said during a satellite-carried news conference. Schweitzer’s command operates in Paktika, Paktia, Lowgar, Ghazni and Khost provinces in the southeastern part of the country.

“Khowst is a pretty developed city in Afghanistan, and it has been a target of suicide (improvised explosive devices),” he said. “We think it is going to continue to be a target of IEDs for the Taliban.”

However, the Taliban’s plan to intimidate Khowst’s citizens into not cooperating with the Afghan government or its coalition partners “is just not working for them,” the colonel said.
