Afghan people are planning to stage a protest rally to voice their anger against night raids carried out by US forces in the war-ravaged country’s Herat province, Press TV reports.


Afghan tribal leaders in Shindand district, situated in the southern part of Herat Province told Press TV on Sunday that they will organize massive protests if American forces continue their deadly attacks.

The development came after the US forces arbitrarily arrested a local police officer along with two others in the area.

According to tribal leaders, US-led foreign troops storm Afghan people’s homes and take them to unknown places without coordination with local authorities.

The nighttime operations by the US-led forces have resulted in civilian casualties and increasing tension between Washington and Kabul.

The 2001-present US-led war in Afghanistan, which has caused record-high civilian and military casualties, has become the longest military conflict in the American history.

Washington invaded Afghanistan under the pretext of combating terrorism.

Insecurity continues to rise across Afghanistan, despite the presence of thousands of US-led forces in the country.
