KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Afghanistan’s Taliban said Monday they would participate in a three-day cease-fire for the Eid-al-Fitr holiday this week marking the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.The cease-fire would begin on either Wednesday or Thursday. The Muslim calendar follows lunar cycles and the Eid holiday depends on the sighting of the new moon.
Taliban spokesman Suhail Shaheen said Taliban fighters have been ordered to stop all offensives, “to provide a peaceful and secure atmosphere to our compatriots . . . so that they may celebrate this joyous occasion with a greater peace of mind.”The cease-fire announcement comes amid heightened violence in the country and follows a brutal attack on a girls’ school on Saturday that killed as many 60 people, most of them students between 11-15 years old. The death toll from the three explosions continues to climb.

The cease-fire announcement also comes as the U.S. and NATO are withdrawing the last of their military forces. The final 2,500-3,500 American soldiers and roughly 7,000 allied NATO forces will leave by Sept. 11 at the latest.The Afghan government has not yet responded to the cease-fire announcement.
However, deadly violence continued elsewhere in the country. Eleven people died when a bus hit a roadside mine in southern Zabul province, Interior Ministry spokesman Tariq Arian said Monday.Improvised explosive devices litter the countryside and have been used extensively by the Taliban.Read more: The Associated Press »

Crickets from Biden Harris. Girls are victimized. Not sure if it's accurate but the rumor is, there is a plan of 'a talk' for a 3 day (only) holiday gun control ceasefire between NRA, Republicans, and Democrats. I'll bet it's SM rubish. If they deny this...why wont they shake hand with govt to bring the culprits to justice....simply denying wont do...this is inhuman...barbaric...
US calls herself an advanced civilized state. Yesterday State Dept called killing of Afghan girls barbaric. What I saw on 01/06/21 at U.S Capitol no less barbaric. For me U.S responsible for invasion, occupation & killings of so many Afghans 2001-2021! Not Afghans. Genocide! it sounds good that Taliban postpone killing people for 3 days, and they will resume the massacre on day 4 of Eid. We are thanful to Pakistan and the proxy TB for their Eid dedication.
POTUS and VP, If we as a nation don't stay involved and insist on a workable peace, then we failed not only Afghans but my military brothers and sisters who gave their lives over there. First they bomb a girls school, now they want to celebrate Ramadan.. Devils are killing children for what exactly? soscolombia
ya'll killing each other over religion only to take a 3 day vacation for religion. The Taliban can eat shit.
Afghan Taliban declares three-day ceasefire for Eid celebration this week -spokesman Taliban insurgents said on Monday they would observe a three-day ceasefire in Afghanistan for the Muslim religious holiday of Eid, starting this week, after weeks of increasing violence that gripped the country. What about the 60 young girls you just killed when you blew up their school ? So who's blowing up the children? No ever claims responsibility. Ceasefire of that would be very nice It sounds like they are conciliatory and can sit down peaceful to exchange idea, what a harmonious scenery it is. So why don’t just act like this forever , to cope the argument and disagreement by communication rather than war. To protect the common citizens.
They are terrorists like Al Qaeda both have same Islamofascist ideology, only way to eradicate them is to implement policies of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk (Founder and 1st President of Turkey) Live Cali Colombia Colombia CaliEnAlertaRoja DuqueNarcoParacoYAsesino CaliEnPeligro CaliSOS ColombiaSinPresidente ColombiaResiste

Afghan girls return to school after Taliban bombing kills 60Gayle Tzemach Lemmon and NBC's Richard Engel join Andrea Mitchell to report on a weekend bombing at a school in southern Afghanistan , raising fears of a series of attacks from the Taliban as the U.S. gets set to withdraw troops from the country. RichardEngel Looks to me like that country doesn't have the proper people running it either! We have military here in the UNITED STATES and the school's still closed! I'm sure the UN funds their needs with Taxpayers Money!
