U.S. Military Official: Combat to Continue in Afghanistan Until Taliban Surrenders

NATO-backed Afghan forces will continue operations against the Taliban until the Islamic group surrenders its arms and yields to the internationally recognized government, headed by President Ashraf Ghani, a U.S. military official said. “The people of Afghanistan want and deserve peace, and peace will come to Afghanistan when the Taliban lay down their weapons, renounce violence, and reconcile with the National Unity Government,” Navy Capt. William Salvin, a spokesman for the NATO-led Resolute Support mission in Afghanistan, told the Washington Free Beacon.
