Afghan Taliban warns of widespread terror attacks ahead of presidential elections

Kabul, Apr. 4: The Afghan Taliban has issued a new threat of widespread attacks in Afghanistan in the run-up to the elections.

The terror organization said it has ‘obtained a document of government security plan’ for the vote.

The group added that the document includes detailed list of names of many officials and areas where troops will be deployed for election duty, Taliban spokesperson Zabihullah Mujahid said.

The document will enable the militants to target the officials.

According to the Express Tribune, Mujahid said the group will try to sabotage the April 5 vote that will mark the first-ever democratic transition in Afghanistan.

He said the Taliban would now intensify attacks on all those who are part of the “fake” elections.(ANI)
