Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani congratulated the country’s armed forces in Ghazni for their victory over Taliban insurgents in the strategically important city after clashes that killed at least 150 soldiers and 95 civilians.

It was gathered that, the Taliban’s five-day siege of Ghazni eased on Wednesday after Afghan officials declared that they had regained complete control of the city by killing hundreds of Taliban fighters.

Ghani met officials in Ghazni, a Central Afghanistan City on the main highway linking the capital, Kabul, with the south, to assess security, and also met families of the victims and prayed for the deceased.

Report says the assault on Ghazni exposed the fragile grip Ghani’s Western-backed government has on security and its apparent inability to prevent large-scale attacks.
