they are seriously trying to resist second is that we are just went to your season meaning that there is less fighting and more pressure in big cities like call home and this is. certainly not a new trend but this year we see more bloodshed and the one today. i live near a bomb and the one to two days ago which killed more than hundred people in central kabul ok that was a very serious attack you know what our security service is doing right now how are they responding to. all attacks indicate major security is shortcomings the national unity has. to provide security in the strategic locations like egypt to the town like downtown kabul where. it's very crowded during the day and the fact that the taliban.

operation continues. is about to full after that place is taken will advance with even more determination turkish backed troops have been trying to come to the strategically important hill for days the good news for them came on sunday. and pro wants to prevent the kurds from gaining. long term control of the border areas there one sees the white p.g. as an extended ome of the p.k. k. policy which washington has designated a terrorist organization for the us the white b.g. is an ally in the fight against the so-called islamic state turkeys or drones tools men bitch was particularly provocative since washington has its own troops stationed. but an end to the offensive is not in sight though your notice that there is they're going to close out. which we have previously cleared of terrorists one hundred thirty thousand brothers have returned and settled back
