The armed group launched a coordinated attack on the city, as part of its “spring offensive” against the government.

🇦🇫 On the Front Lines with the Taliban | Fault Lines

Fault Lines – On the Front Lines with the Taliban

In this episode of Fault Lines, we gain unprecedented access to report from the Taliban stronghold of Charkh District, just an hour outside the Afghan capital, Kabul.

Reporter Nagieb Khaja follows Taliban fighters as they launch an attack on an Afghan National Army (ANA) base, and investigates what the ANA are up against as foreign troops continue to withdraw.

Khaja follows a dawn raid as the Taliban pound the ANA base with rockets and machine guns, and he witnesses suicide attackers attempt to enter through the main gates. ISAF planes circle overhead, and Khaja is concerned that they will engage. He watches the Taliban deal with losing men and interviews a local Talib about what he does when he is not engaged in warfare.

Fault Lines also interviews Jack Keane, a retired US four-star general, and Kurt Volker, the former US ambassador to NATO (2008 to 2009), to get their analysis on the battle and what the future holds for Afghanistan.

On the Front Lines with the Taliban gives a rare look into the internal workings of the Taliban and illustrates some of the issues facing the Afghan National Army as the US withdraws its troops in 2014.

🇺🇸 🇦🇫 Trump’s Top General in Afghanistan | People and Power

Afghanistan: The General

Last year, US President Donald Trump announced a “new” strategy for his country’s forces in Afghanistan.

The plan involved reversing his predecessor’s phased withdrawal, bumping up the number of US troops to as many as 15,000, and giving new authority to US commanders to strike the Taliban in an effort to force the group to eventually negotiate a truce with the Afghan government.

But almost 17 years since the original US-led invasion, there are no signs that this approach is proving any more successful than those that have gone before it.

Indeed, a string of brutal attacks over the past few months, killing and injuring hundreds of innocent Afghans, have shown the stark reality of the fragile and worsening state of security in Afghanistan. It’s made even worse by the increasingly bloody contribution of Daesh (or ISIS-K as it’s known locally) to the fray.

General John Nicholson is the man charged with implementing Trump’s strategy. He is the “Four Star” controlling Resolute Support and counter-terrorism in the region, and after his appeals to the US Senate for more troops, fresh boots on the ground began arriving in 2017.

But under his watch the general has also seen an emboldened insurgency take control of large parts of the country and launch attacks seemingly at will.

People & Power sent correspondent Sue Turton to meet the general now in overall charge of foreign forces in Afghanistan to ask whether and how this bloody and interminable conflict can ever be brought to an end.

🇮🇷 Iran will not compromise on self-defence capability | Al Jazeera English

To save the 2015 nuclear deal, European leaders may look for concessions on Iran’s ballistic missile programme.

Its strategy in Syria, Lebanon and Yemen could also be questioned.

But Iran insists it has the right to self-defence and an independent foreign policy.

Al Jazeera’s Zein Basravi reports from Tehran, Iran.

🇹🇷 🇮🇱Airport frisking video deepens Israel-Turkey tension | Al Jazeera English

Israel has accused Turkey of treating its ambassador ”harshly”, as he was expelled from the country.

Eitan Naveh was filmed being patted down by security guards at an Istanbul airport.

This deepens a diplomatic dispute between the two countries, who have asked each other’s envoys to leave following Monday’s violence in Gaza.

Al Jazeera’s Harry Fawcett reports from West Jerusalem.
