Taliban announce commencement of Spring operations

May 2, 2012

The Taliban have just released a statement on their website today announcing the commencement of Spring operations (ie the Spring offensive).  I have been expecting their statement for some time – last year’s announcement came out on 30th April.  The tone and word count doesn’t seem significantly different from that of last year.

As the period for the inception of new Jihadi activities against the foreign forces each year is chosen and named by Islamic Emirate under new Jihadi title in consideration with the seasonal and atmospheric conditions, we would once again like to announce the current year’s spring operation against the invaders under the glorified Jihadi name of ‘Al-Farooq’.

There doesn’t seem to be anything particularly new – whether tactics, politics, target audiences or “reach out” messages, etc.  I’ll have a proper read through and then get something up on the blog about it.
