Tuesday February 21, 2017

Kabul (BNA) Pakistan militaries have conducted rocket and mortar attacks on Nangarhar’s Lalpur district for the past five days and caused displacing nearly two thousands of the district’s residents.
Residents of the respective district have protested and accused national unity government of inattention in this regard. According to the protesters, if the government of Afghanistan cannot react and respond Pakistan attacks, they are ready to defend their homeland and stand against Pakistan by giving sacrifices. But, why US forces to Afghanistan are still quiet in this regard, is a question which should be answered by US Donald Trump administration. Based on security agreement between Afghanistan and US, if a country of the region attack on Afghanistan, the US government is obliged to stand with Afghanistan government and show similar reaction against the attackers. The US forces to Afghanistan should strongly react against the Pakistan attack and even chase and perish terrorists having safe havens and hideouts in Pakistan so that all problems would end.
Previously, Pakistan militaries had targeted Kunar and Nooristan by firing rockets and mortar shells for years, but such rocket attacks have extended now to Nangarhar province and Afghanistan government should soon find solution through diplomatic channels and ask US to react in this regard based on BSA. Meanwhile, Nangarhar governor Gulab Mangal says fresh ground and artillery forces have been dispatched to Lalpur district of the province and nobody will be allowed to attack and enter even an inch of Afghanistan soil; nevertheless, Afghans say that US presence should be meaningful and let no countries attack on Afghanistan. The government of Afghanistan should also address problems of the respective district’s people suffered by Pakistan rocket attacks. Besides, the international community in particular US should put pressure on Pakistan to urgently stop rocket attacks on Afghanistan. It is not the first time Pakistan militaries have attacked on Afghan soil. Previously, the country had conducted rocket attacks on Kunar and even once fighting erupted between Afghan and Pakistan security forces in Torkham port causing causalities of both sides and facing Afghan refugees with big problems.
The government of Afghanistan should also share the problem with UN so that the United Nations would also put pressure on US to react against Pakistan artillery attacks and if US does not want to react on current problems, its presence in Afghanistan useless.
It is said that Afghan government representatives should conduct campaigns before participation in world security conferences held on Afghanistan so that donor countries would be encouraged to positively make decision on Afghanistan. In place of disputes on distribution of power, Afghan government leaders should think of the people, address current problems and prevent from attacks conducted by neighboring countries. Although US forces general commander to Afghanistan Gen. John Nicolson has said war in Afghanistan would not end and victory of the international forces in Afghanistan not possible until there were safe havens and hideouts in Pakistan, considered as a key country for funding armed groups and terrorists, but US still has not declared its stance about Pakistan.
