Kabul (BNA) There were many similarities in recent incidents in the country. This clearly indicates that those bloody terrorist incidents were originated and organized from the same source.
BNA political analyst commenting on the issue writes during the last six days military training centers and security bases in different parts of the country were the targets of terrorist attacks. Surprisingly, there were similarities in techniques and means used in the attacks, without doubt the attacks have been designed and managed from a same source.
The incidents took place in a time, Afghan security forces in fight against terrorism in Ander district, Ghazni province confronted with Pakistani Army troops and commandoes where 15 Pakistani commandoes were killed and five others injured. Also, Abo Taher Bajauly a Pakistani citizen along with his nine men were killed in an air operation of Afghan air forces in Mohmand Dara district, Nangarhar province. The presence of Pakistani national alongside Taliban and IS in Afghanistan is a clear proof that Pakistan as before is involved in fueling war in Afghanistan and would not be ready to desist its evil action easily. Pakistan interference and presence of its troops in Afghan war and fighting alongside terrorist groups is not a new thing, and not only their presence has proved in Ander district, Ghazni province and Achin district, Nangarhar province.
Local people and security authorities in Kunduz province also have said that they have seen men in masks and black clothes alongside Taliban in Imam Sahib District and other parts of the province who talk to anybody and even serve their meal away from their Afghan colleagues. Without doubt these masked men in black clothed are Pakistanis in disguise of Taliban and IS have invaded Afghanistan and destroying our homeland. Military experts serious believe that carrying attack such as the recent terrorist attacks using all military means without Pakistani intelligence service cooperation were impossible, because the weapons and explosives used in the attacks were only owned by Pakistan and its army.
Without doubt the security and defense authorities in National Security Council better know about who really were behind those barbaric terrorist incidents. Therefore, the people expect the authorities to awake the dormant and think about mobilizing people against Pakistani invasion. In addition, the message of Afghan people to world community, US and European Union and the countries that have signed security agreement with Afghanistan perform their obligations according the agreement and implement them in practice.

Kabul (BNA) The escalation of terrorist activities in the country made it an urgent need to renew and further improve the programs and strategy on security and pay serous attention for settling certain problems of intelligence and security organs.
BNA military affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes during the last five days Kabul and several provinces were the scene of unprecedented terrorist attacks. The terrorists carrying terrorist and suicide attacks on Kabul, Ghazni, Paktia, Ghor, Kandahar, Farha, Urozgan and other parts of the country have killed a great number of our compatriots including men, women and children. Taliban and IS notorious groups claimed responsibility of those barbaric and inhumane attacks.
What have happened during the last days is coincident with new political development in the region and the country. During the period, quadripartite for starting peace negations held, Kabul hosted the Mayors of countries located along Silk Road and armed oppositions were defeated in battle fields. Therefore, terrorists for showing their existence resort a series of terrorist attacks which led human casualties and heavy destructions. Political elites and military experts terrorist groups carrying the recent attacks have tries to introduce themselves as an effective group in political process on the country in one hand and on other hand became the focus of media.
Somewhat Taliban achieved their evil objectives. They showed the vulnerability and mismanagement among security and intelligence organs of the country to the relevant organs of the country.
But, what will be the consequences of the attacks?
Military experts believe in recent attacks, there are many similarities. The attackers have used the same techniques and the attacks were designed and monitored and launched by the same source. Therefore, the recognition of the perpetrators of these barbaric attacks would be not so difficult for cognizance forces of our country. Therefore the relevant organs should take serious and effective steps toward recognition of the criminals otherwise, our security and intelligence forces and finally the government will lose their credibility among the public.
It is a clear fact that after the recent attacks Taliban achieved their propaganda goals, but in same time the sympathy and support of people from security forces increased. In addition showing sympathy and support of people would be a warning for the state because the people would not forget the heavy casualties among military forces, if the situation continues in this manner, it would be difficult encourage their sons to join security and defense forces of the country, while the honor and independence of the country depend to those forces. Political elites and military experts believe it would be the urgent need of the state to remove the numerous challenges of security and defense forces of the country. First of all military strategy should be renewed, bring reform in security and intelligence organs and appointment should be according to law and profession. Since we know the sensitivities of the situation, then we should establish a precise and practical strategy and go to the war against terrorism, otherwise terrorist attack like recent attacks will increase.

Kabul (BNA) European Union in its last session announced its strategy on Afghanistan and once again the member countries of the union confirmed their support from Afghan people and government.
BNA political analyst commenting on the issue writes European Union that it’s most member countries has military presence in Afghanistan and is the closest ally of US in counter – terrorism struggle has recently announced its strategy on Afghanistan.
The foreign ministers of the Union in their recent session calling the situation in Afghanistan fragile, renewed their commitments on the country aiming restoring stability, strengthening peace process in to the interest of the region and the world, enforcement of law and public rule in the country, providing the ground for good governance, improving the role of Afghan women in the community, settling the refugees problem and economic growth of Afghanistan. These were the major part of European Union’s strategy on Afghanistan.
The Afghan authorities and politicians consider the announcement of European’s strategy as a sign of continuation of world support from Afghan people and government and called the European Union a powerful and confidential friend of Afghanistan in world arena.
Afghan people welcoming the good well of world community and European Union insist that the strategies of friendly countries and world powerful organizations on Afghanistan should be effective and constructive and practically be useful in restoring peace and stability in the country.
In addition, it would require the countries and organizations practically assist Afghanistan in building capacity in security, economic and good governance fields and pay serious attention on improvement of security, economic social and good governance fields. The most essential way for settling Afghan problem and restoring stability in the region is supporting Afghan security and defense forces, because they better know about the situation and geography of their country and can operate successfully therefore, it would be reasonable to invest on them. Meanwhile the Afghan people expect the friendly countries and international organizations focus on funding and equipping centers of terrorists located outside Afghan territories in order to eliminate the terrorists’ strongholds and hideouts to save the lives of Afghan innocent citizens and the lives of the national of other countries fighting against terrorism.
Also, the Afghans wish the programs and strategies on Afghanistan should be effective and practical that lead to peace and stability in Afghanistan and in the region not to proxy war and rivalry of outsiders in Afghanistan.
The most important thing in this situation is that all countries around the world know that a peaceful and secure Afghanistan is in to the benefit of the region and the world.
Therefore, we expect the European to perform its duties and obligation to achieve that humane and noble aim.

Kabul (BNA) The Red Crescent Week is an opportunity to honor and express gratitude for the services carrying out by this credible charity organization and renews our commitments for serving the needy people.
BNA social affairs commenting on the issue writes the last decade of October is celebrated as a special week of Red Crescent.
The aim of celebrating the special week of Red Crescent is to assess and express gratitude for the humanitarian activities of Afghan Red Crescent in one hand and on other hand provide the ground for designing practical plans and programs for helping the needy people. 
Also, special week of Red Crescent instigates the humanitarian feelings of generous rich people and charity organizations to perform their moral and religious obligations before the victims of war and natural incidents by offering physical and spiritual aids and meet their moral and religious obligations.
Our people view charity organizations such as Red Crescent and Red Cross and other similar organs as effective and useful organs that provide timely assistances for needy people in critical times.  Because, these humanitarian organizations in most critical situation away from all political affiliations just think about serving their fellowmen. 
Unfortunately, terrorist groups and cliques constantly have tried to prevent the activities of these humanitarian organizations.
The catastrophic terrorist attacks on offices of Red Cross within the last two years made that impartial and independent organization to reduce its activities in Afghanistan, while the war suffering Afghan people are in need of cooperation and aids of this global organization.
In addition, terrorist groups creating barriers on the way of activities of this impartial and humanitarian organ prevent it from extending humanitarian aids to the most vulnerable people of Afghanistan.
Special Week of Red Crescent besides being an opportunity to reach and remove the problems of needy people can be used as an opportunity for supporting charity organizations. In order to implement this goal in practice, all means like pulpits of the mosques, media, dignitaries, politicians and people in general join hand to support charity organizations that without any discriminations provide aids to the most vulnerable people and respect and honor their impartial  aids and services.
