Afghan govt says air strikes in northern province of Kunduz have killed at least 30 Taliban militants. Provincial officials say at least 12 civilians killed. #Afghanistan

There are reports of deaths among civilians from air strikes in Kunduz, with women and children among the casulties.

Quoted @AhMukhtar

As @FawziaKoofi77 prepares to defend women right in Doha, in Kabul 2 young women are beaten in daylight by unknown individuals under the nose of Republic’s police forces. @TariqArian3 @Javidfaisal https://t.co/1S8RXb0xTQ

What cowardly behaviour. Unacceptable https://t.co/GFyXTZz5dx

“The reform will have real-life consequences, making it easier for women to obtain education, health care, & passports & other documentation, & travel w/children. It will be esp significant for women who are widowed, divorced, or have abusive partners.” https://t.co/jIM6J8NRJH https://t.co/7rFMEESFTy

U.S. Congressmen Urge Afghan Leaders To Preserve Women's 'Advances' During Taliban Talks https://t.co/KtdG7si39P

According to UN figures, violence in #Afghanistan in the last 5 weeks has been the highest in the last 5 years. With the new -hopeful- chapter of talks opening, it can’t be business as ever. T must now show capacity to act politically, not as insurgents using arms to twist arms.

Afghan President Approves Inclusion Of Mother’s Name On ID cards https://t.co/VafAPYPGfr via @GandharaRFE

No wonder govt wants to defund @starsandstripes "At least 21k gallons of raw sewage from portable toilets at the U.S. Embassy are unloaded ea. month at the aging Makroyan Waste Water Treatment Plant, which pipes the untreated sewage into the river..." https://t.co/TQ3I3kpcKf

Taliban’s growing financial power has been overseen by Mullah Yaqoob, the new and ambitious military chief who has taken over group’s financing. Yaqoob, son of Taliban spiritual leader Mullah Mohammad Omar, is also seeking to take over the leadership. https://t.co/6FwfmCa4Wn

#Afghanistan's acting defense minister Asadullah Khalid: "If the enemy is thinking that they can conquer everything by force, it is a dream, it is a fantasy, it is impossible, and it is madness."

Important report by @lynnekodonnell, commissioned by NATO, on Taliban’s burgeoning financial and military power. Taliban’s goal of self-sufficiency could have damaging implications for peace efforts in #Afghanistan and for regional and global security. https://t.co/6FwfmCrGkX

I obtained a confidential report commissioned by NATO on the Taliban’s finances. Taliban's expanding financial power — $1.6 billion in annual revenue — could make it immune to intl pressure as it negotiates role in postwar #Afghanistan, report warns. https://t.co/6FwfmCrGkX

A few points about this Breitbart interview with Pompeo on #AfghanPeaceProcess 1/5 https://t.co/Hy02wfCsXt

Pompeo told @AtlanticCouncil that there are fewer than 200 Al-Qaeda fighters left in #Afghanistan. Only in June, the UN said there were an estimated 400-600 Al-Qaeda fighters, including its leadership, operating in Afghanistan.🤔https://t.co/COiJFxy1wE

Khowja Asif .
The same guy you think has Khoda with him was being tortured in a Pak jail when you were Minister of Defence. No? 2) When you were Minister, TTP massacred 140 kids in Army Public School. Was Khoda with them too? Did you chant Allah o Akbar from behind your MoD desk? https://t.co/XZUUnt3Jkp https://t.co/sc9ATqKX70

Quoted @MujMash

At cashing in time, the old denial is gone not just from civilian side of Pakistan — here is the former FM with chants of ‘Allah u Akbar’ in support of Taliban — but also military establishment: Afghan VP saleh said Gen. Bajwa told him ‘yes we supported Taliban;let’s talk future’ https://t.co/MqP1KDQYzJ

And as many have pointed out, Khawaja Asif was cabinet minister when this same guy — Mullah Baradar — to whose strength he is saying “Allah u Akbar” now was held in solitary confinement and tortured by Pakistan for ten years. His crime? Trying to make this peace 10 years ago. https://t.co/Gl1fg5UC8V
