KABUL - Afghan Taliban send a message to the Nation on the eve of Eid Ul Azha 2019.
Eid felicitation message has been sent by the Taliban leader Mullah Hibatullah Akhundzada which asks his fighters to ensure the safety of the people during Eid days.
“My instructions to you are that you give full attention to protecting, helping and comforting your believing nation during Eid days. Take all necessary steps for the well-being and security of your fellow compatriots. Visit the families of martyrs, disabled and prisoners and assist them to the best of your capabilities,” Mr. Akhundzada wrote, a day after the Taliban car bomb in Kabul killed scores of Afghans.
Mr. Akhundzada who like his predecessor Mullah Omar refrains to appear in public has also talked about the peace process and said that the Taliban are tackling the peace talks seriously.
However, he has raised his skepticism over what he described it a conflicting statement of the political and military officials of the US and an increase in the bombardments.
