Taliban Announces Resuming Of Offensive Operations Against Afghan Forces, Breaking Temporary Truce


The Taliban announced Monday its intention of resuming offensive operations against the forces of the government of Afghanistan, breaking a partial truce put in place before the Taliban signed the landmark peace deal with the U.S. on Saturday.

Although this announcement, and a subsequent explosion in eastern Afghanistan, have come little more than 48 hours after the signing of a peace deal between the Taliban and the U.S., the Taliban have maintained that these new developments will not affect the events of Saturday.

The State Department has not responded to a request for comment on how this turn of events will affect the peace deal going forward.
