Kabul, Dec 18 : Taliban supreme leader Mullah Omar has vowed to attack Afghan and international troops who forced his men to leave a southern town last week.
Taliban supreme leader Mullah Omar has vowed to attack Afghan and international troops who forced his men to leave a southern town last week.
"We'll not allow rest for invading forces in Musa Qala. Our mujahedin (holy warriors) are still around the villages," Omar said in a statement.
"We've supplied our fronts across Afghanistan. We'll continue to attack the invading forces and their Afghan servants throughout the winter," he added.
Thousands of Afghan military forces backed by the NATO-led troops entered the troubled town of Musa Qala in southern Helmand province, and pushed the militants out last week.
"The enemy has been defeated," Omar said.
"But to totally defeat them and force them out of our country, we all need to give sacrifice," said Omar, adding, " Eid al-Adha means (festival of the) sacrifice, and this is the time to sacrifice for our country."
Omar was Afghanistan's de facto head of state from 1996 to 2001, under the title Commander of the Faithful. He has been in hiding and wanted by US authorities for harbouring Osama bin Laden and his al-Qaeda organization.
The US has placed a multi-million dollar bounty on the head of Omar, a The News report has said. (ANI)
