Taliban rejects pleas by Afghan elders for a ceasefire extension

KABUL (Reuters) – The Taliban on Monday rejected pleas by Afghan elders and activists for an extension of this month’s ceasefire and said they amounted to a call for surrender to foreign forces, as local groups continued to push for an end to fighting.

Pawel Adamowicz: Gdansk mayor stabbed at charity event

The mayor of the Polish city of Gdansk has been seriously injured after being stabbed on stage at the country’s biggest charity event, officials say. Pawel Adamowicz, fifty-three, had to be resuscitated after the attack and is in a critical condition in hospital. The twenty-seven-year-old suspect, who has a criminal record, has been detained.

Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid dismissed the peace “slogans” and urged civil society activists and others not to join movements he said played into the hands of U.S. and international forces the Taliban wants to force from the country. “They are not speaking about the occupation or the withdrawal of foreigners. Their objective is that we lay down our weapons and accept the regime imposed by the invaders,” he said in a statement. A truce over the 3 day Eid al-Fitr festival this month, during which unarmed Taliban fighters mingled with soldiers and civilians in the capital KBL and other cities has given fresh impetus to the calls for peace, although many also dismiss the ceasefire as a Taliban trick.

He reportedly shouted that he had been wrongfully imprisoned under the previous government, led by the mayor’s former party. The incident took place at the finale of the annual Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity event, which was attended by hundreds of people. The suspect, who was released from prison recently, had access to the scene using a media badge, Polish media say.

A small group of peace marchers who came to KBL on foot from the southern province of Helmand this month have also gained prominence, with pleas to all sides to end a conflict which has now lasted for fourty years. “Tribal elders may not be able to bring about peace and create a ceasefire for the whole country but they can for their own districts and they will,” said Dawlat Wazir, an elder in Jani Khil district in the eastern province of Paktia. In Jani Khil, elders held a meeting that drew hundreds of people at the weekend, calling on the government and Taliban forces to refrain from fighting in their area.

Television footage showed him shouting “Adamowicz is dead.” The stabbing, during an event that raises money for children’s hospitals, has shocked PL, the BGIC’s Adam Easton in IAD reports. Mr Adamowicz is a well-known political figure who has been mayor of Gdansk, a Baltic port city, for twenty years, our correspondent adds.

“We are so fed up with operations by government forces in our areas that trigger fighting for days,” said Malek Sakhto, 1 of the elders behind the meeting. “We’re pleading with the government and the Taliban to agree on a ceasefire and stop killing each other and civilians.”

Moments before the attack, he posted a picture on his Instagram from the stage of the event, where dozens of people were holding white lights. The popular mayor, a former member of PL’s main opposition Civic Platform party, is seen as a liberal voice and has supported rights for minorities. Interior Minister Joachim Brudzinski said the attack was “an act of inexplicable barbarism”.

The success of such local initiatives is mixed and may stand little chance as military operations pick up. But they underline the widespread fatigue felt across the country as the fighting has dragged on. Underlining the threat, a suicide bomber targeted a police checkpoint in the eastern district of Kunar on Monday evening, killing at least 8 people, Shah Khesraw, the local governor of Sawky district said. The explosion occurred hours after a group of peace marchers in Kunar had set off for KBL, where the Helmand marchers have established themselves near the headquarters of the United Nations Assistance Mission to AF.

President Ashraf Ghani ordered government forces to stop offensive operations against the Taliban for another ten days after the end of the ceasefire but there has since been fierce fighting in several areas. In Logar, to the south of the capital KBL, local elders and religious scholars have been trying to arrange a ceasefire in Azra district, according to Abdul Wali, a member of the Logar provincial council. He said an informal accord had been reached but local people were still waiting for an official announcement from the Taliban shadow governor for Logar, Muallah Ismail Akhondzada.

  1. The movie was amazing. If you really pay attention and listen it is an excellent film, easily smarter and more detailed than the regular comic book film.
