Ghani appoints Bismillah Mohammadi as Acting Minister of Interior Affairs: sources
Bismillah Mohammadi has been appointed as Acting Interior Minister, replacing Hayatullah Hayat, sources said Wednesday.
Afghan Voice Agency (AVA)_Mohammadi, a member of #Jamiat-e-Islami Party, previously has worked as Minister of Defence, Minister of Interior Affairs, and Chief of the Army Staff.
The development comes as violence dramatically increased across Afghanistan. The Taliban militants captured at least 33 districts following heavy clashes since May 1.
Afghan officials, however, stated that Security and Defense Forces (ANSDF) have “tactically retreated” from the districts.
The Afghan Security and Defense Forces, however, managed to retake the Khanabad district in Kunduz and the #Dawlat_Abad district of #Faryab province that were collapsed to the Taliban in the recent attacks.
