Afghanistan: US stands down in Helmand, Taliban to do the same

Attacks by the Taliban in several districts of Helmand and parts of neighbouring Kandahar province have forced tens of thousands of people from their homes in the past few days; they are now displaced and struggling without adequate food and shelter.
Local officials accuse the Taliban of teaming up with local al-Qaeda fighters to strengthen its position
Since Tuesday, US has been supporting Afghan forces with air raids on Taliban positions, which it announced on Friday that it would cease in order to maintain the February peace agreement it signed with the Taliban.

Al Jazeera’s Laura Burdon-Manley reports.

    Afghanistan was referred to as "The Great Game" by the British & is a Great Big Cemetery & Grave-Yard of Empires. Take the Brits, Soviet Union/Russia & America most recently. Whose foolish enough next to try?

    What does the Taliban want?? Why doesn't the government just give them a piece of land they control. Better than the entire country going back to the stone age

    If taliban control afghanistan it will be like the late 90s. There will be no freedom for Afghan people. Women will have no freedom. It'll be a strict islamic state, then the taliban will get bigger and bigger and start attacking Iran, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan.

    Don't trust the taliban, peace talks is just their way of continued attack.

    The peace agreement should've been on the land also not just cease fire. They should've come to an agreement on which land should belong to Taliban and which part should belong to government
