Taliban announce this year's spring offensive

The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, as the Afghan Taliban call themselves, announced yesterday that this year's spring offensive would, like last year's, target "the invaders and their spineless backers." Like previous spring offensives, the Taliban said they would target Coalition military forces and civilians, as well as the Afghan government, military, intelligence services, and tribal militias.

This year's spring offensive, called Khaibar after the Battle of Khaibar, will begin on May 12, the Taliban said in a statement released on their official propaganda website, Voice of Jihad. The Battle of Khaibar took place in 629 in Saudi Arabia. Muslim forces under the command of Mohammed laid siege to and defeated Jews living in Khaibar.

"By taking this name as a good omen for the current year, we ask Allah (SWT) to completely cleanse our country from the filth of the infidels and let their large bases be liberated, Allah willing," the Taliban stated.

The Taliban said "the main target" of Khaibar "shall be the foreign invaders and their backers under various names like spies, military and civilian contractors and everyone working for them like translators, administrators and logistics personnel."

"Similarly the blessed 'Khaibar' Jihadi spring operations shall target all high ranking government officials, cabinet ministers, members of Parliament, security officials, occupation backing officers in the Interior and Foreign Ministries, attorneys and judges that prosecute Mujahideen as well as agents in the National Directorate. . .

Would they mind all gathering for a pre-offensive party?

We’d like to send some 72-virgin gifts.
