KABUL, Apr. 16 – Fresh reports from Kabul point out that the large-scale operation broke out yesterday almost simultaneously in four provinces, Kabul, Logar, Paktia and Nangarhar carried into its second day after 20 hours of fighting as Mujahideen are continuing to deal lethal blows to the so-called ISAF and its puppets, and are putting up strong resistance against the enemy in Kabul and Logar provinces. Zabihullah Mujahid, spokesman for Islamic Emirate, in a telephonic conversation, told Al-Emara that fighting continued to explode in Kabul and Logar provinces with Mujahideen targeting the enemy. He said the heavy fighting was in progress and continued till late night hours and reached its peak at about 3:30 a.m. in Karte Say area of Kabul city and other parts. Mujahid added that the fighting is even deadlier in Poli Alam city, the capital of Logar province in which later last night Mujahideen killed as many as 15 enemy soldiers with a remote-controlled bomb attack besides killing several dozens in direct shooting attacks in both Kabul and Logar provinces. He further said that some of the heroic martyrdom-seeking Mujahideen have laid down their lives reaching the highest ranks of martyrs, but he did not give out information on the exact number of the martyrs. According to eye witnesses multiple weapon sounds, gunfire and explosions were being heard through the night spreading fear and panic across Kabul city, while heavy fighting was still ongoing after 4:00 a.m. and patrol helicopters were hovering overhead and several ambulances were rushing to and from the fighting scene. A doctor, on the condition of anonymity said that the local hospitals were packed with the dead and wounded from the fighting.
