Kandahar, June 20 : After pushing the Taliban out of the Kandahar City yesterday, a Canadian commander in Afghanistan warned that there may be “more spectacular” attacks from the extremists in the coming months.
“There is no doubt in my mind, however, that further insurgent attacks will take place in the months ahead,” the globeandmail. com quoted top Canadian commander in Afghanistan Brigadier-General Denis Thompson, as saying.
By spectacular attack, the commander referred to last week’s well-planned attack on Sarpoza jail on the western outskirts of Kandahar city, freeing nearly 400 Taliban and
600 other criminals, and thereafter briefly seizing the control of a dozen villages in Arghandab district.
