Taliban Launches ‘Spring Offensive’ in Afghanistan

Taliban Unleashes ‘Spring Offensive’ in Afghanistan:
In a formal announcement released Friday, the Islamist insurgency claimed “Operation Mansouri” went into action early Friday morning across all 34 Afghan provinces.
It explained the offensive has been named after Taliban chief Mullah Akhtar Mansour, who was killed by an American drone last year.
“These operations will involve conventional attacks, guerrilla warfare, complex martyrdom (suicide) attacks, insider attacks, and use of IEDs (improvised explosive devices) to achieve their objectives,” said the statement by the Taliban’s so-called leadership war council.
