KABUL: The Taliban said Monday they were resuming offensive operations against Afghan security forces, ending the partial truce that preceded the signing of a deal between the insurgents and Washington.

"The reduction in violence... has ended now and our operations will continue as normal," said Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid.

"As per the (US-Taliban) agreement, our Mujahidin will not attack foreign forces but our operations will continue against the Kabul administration forces."
