Islamabad, Sept 16: Nato forces and Taliban may put off their war with guns after 20 hours of deadlock in Afghan capital Kabul as the two sides have launched their attack on a new battlefield – twitter. Though NATO and Taliban avoided a deal in peace process, they had no intention to stop their trade in the wake of the virtual talks.
The first projectile was propelled by spokesman of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) who tweeted, “Re: Taliban spox on #Kabul attack: the outcome is inevitable. Question is how much longer will terrorist put innocent Afghans in harm’s way?”
The Taliban – who, when in rule, barred modern technology, including television and music players – fired back.
Taliban tweeter Abdulqahar Balk (@ABalkhi ) wrote: “@ISAFmedia i dnt knw.u hve bn pttng thm n ‘harm’s way’ fr da pst 10 yrs.Razd whole vllgs n mrkts.n stil hv da nrve to tlk bout ‘harm’s way’ (In plain English, it means: I didn’t know. You have been putting them in harm’s way for the past 10 years. Razed whole villages and markets. And still have the nerve to talk about harms way).
@ISAFmedia wrote back, “Really, @abalkhi? Unama reported 80% of civilians causalities are caused by insurgent (your) activities.”
A NATO spokesperson said that the tweets were to increase the campaign of fight what it perceives as incorrect information on social networks.
