The Implications of the Taliban’s Spring Offensive on Afghanistan

The Implications of the Taliban’s Spring Offensive on Afghanistan | The Diplomat
While there was no lull in the fighting in Afghanistan throughout 2015, the announcement of the spring offensive could signal a further escalation of violence, accelerating the country’s destabilization. Since the withdrawal of international troops from Afghanistan in 2014, the Taliban have grown from strength to strength, despite initial setbacks emanating from the disclosure of their leader Mullah Omar’s death in July last year. Last year’s violence left 11,000 civilians dead across Afghanistan.
