The Afghan special operation forces are capable of simultaneously conducting 30 anti-terror operations within 24 hours in various regions of the country, the commander of Afghan special forces brigade general Bismillah Waziri said on Thursday.

He said the elite forces were able to plan at least 12 targeted operations and execute 18 immediate operations against the terrorists.

The Ministry of Defense (MoD) has said that these forces will be extremely important in fighting the more than 20 terror groups in Afghanistan.

“More than twenty terrorist groups are fighting in Afghanistan and regional intelligence services are supporting them,” said MoD spokesman Dawlat Waziri.

These special forces will be merged within the framework of an army brigade once their numbers have doubled, a defense ministry official said on Thursday.
