Hayatullah Hayat, the governor of Helmand Province, said good news at a press conference for the people of Nad Ali, Marjah, Garmsir and Sangin districts. He said that the ANSF will soon conduct a clearance operation on those districts.
He also said the ANDSF have taken an extensive plan to clear Nad Ali first from the Taliban and then to open the highway of Marjah for the locals to freely use it.
Jamshid a local resident of Nad Ali said, they are happy of the ANSF operation on their areas because Taliban collect Zakat from the locals and it is illegal. They support the ANDSF launching operations to drive out the Taliban.
