Afghan security forces foil terror attacks on Kabul

Afghan security forces have foiled a series of potentially devastating attacks on the capital city of Kabul and seized a large quantity of weapons, Press TV reports.

Afghanistan’s National Directorate of Security (NDS) said in a statement on Monday that its forces detained at least four top militants during a raid on a militant hideout in the 8th police district of the Kabul city.

The militants had intended to carry out a string of deadly attacks on Afghan presidential place, Defense Ministry and two US-led NATO bases across the troubled city, it noted.

The statement also said the militants had received military training inside Pakistan’s northwestern tribal region near the border with Afghanistan.

The developments come as relations between Kabul and Islamabad are traditionally mired in distrust. Afghanistan and Pakistan blame each other for the Taliban-led violence plaguing both countries.

Senior officials in Kabul blame elements within the Pakistani spy agency Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) for supporting Taliban militants, while Islamabad blames Afghanistan for sheltering militants.
