Taliban in Afghanistan announces historic three-day ceasefire after dozens killed in attacks | The Independent

Militants pledge to halt attacks over Muslim Eid holiday – but foreigners are excluded

The Taliban in Afghanistan has announced a surprise three-day ceasefire – hours after dozens of people were killed in a string of attacks.

In the first offer of its kind, the militant group said it would halt attacks over the Muslim Eid holiday in the middle of June.

Foreign forces would be excluded from the ceasefire, and operations against them would continue, the Taliban said, adding that they would defend themselves against any attack.

“Members of the Taliban should not participate in public gatherings during the Eid festivities because the enemy could target us,” they said in a statement.

The news came two days after the government declared an unconditional ceasefire of its own, with president Ashraf Ghani unveiling a week-long ceasefire with the Taliban to coincide with the holiday.
