A man suspected of trying to enter the base of the XI deployment of Mongolian peacekeepers, serving with German troops in the NATO-led “Resolute Support” mission in the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan on 23 June. Mongolian peacekeepers put the man, Mohammad Mansoor Rahman, into custody after he tried to enter the base driving a truck in the night.
According to NATO intelligence department, the suspected man was a former member of Taliban movement and participated in a terrorist attack against the military alliance. The terrorist motive was collecting information about the base for Taliban movement.
Currently, the situation in Afghanistan is more complex than usual: following direct peace talks between the US and the Taliban, a fragile ceasefire was won. President Ashraf Ghani – who was not involved in the talks – has been pressured by Washington to release several thousand Taliban prisoners. The Taliban itself, while continuing to attack Afghan servicemen and security forces, has been avoiding conflict with NATO troops. The situation has been made more complex by continuing ISIS and independent terrorist activity including a truly horrific attack on a maternity ward in a hospital.
