Taliban Announce 'Spring Offensive' across Afghanistan
[An Nahar] The Taliban militia announced their "spring offensive" would begin across Afghanistan on Thursday.
Code-named al-Farouq, the primary targets of the offensive would be "foreign invaders, their advisors, their contractors, all those who help them militarily and in intelligence", the cut-throats said on their website.
"Al-Farouq spring offensive will be launched on May 3 all over Afghanistan," the hard boy group said.
The militia said the code name came from Islam's second caliph, Omar al-Farouq known for his military advances in Asia and the Arab world during the 7th century.
