Afghan military experts said that it was a lack of proper intelligence on the Taliban that allowed the insurgent militants to infiltrate the Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF).
Afghan military expert Noorulhaq Olomi believes that as long as Afghanistan lacks a sufficient intelligence agency and fails to closely monitor the movement of the Taliban and Afghanistan's enemies, it would be difficult to prevent their infiltration.
"We should have sufficient intelligence personnel to monitor their movement from inside. They [Taliban] are everywhere and they use every opportunity to harm Afghanistan," Olomi told TOLOnews on Sunday.
Another Afghan military expert Gen. Atiqullah Amarkhil said that if the country's intelligence department was more professional and better equipped, they could better control the activities of insurgents.
"[The intelligence agents] are not that strong, and they are neither professional nor equipped. We are in the preliminary stages, and they would be more effective when they have agents inside [the Taliban] to neutralise their activities within," Amarkhil told TOLOnews.
Meanwhile, the spokesman for Afghan Ministry of Interior Sediq Sediqqi said that they are trying hard to protect Afghans and prevent attacks, particularly in Kabul.
"In close collaboration with the security department and the national army of Afghanistan, we are trying to prevent any attacks or schemes of the enemies in Kabul province, particularly inside Kabul city," Sediqqi told TOLOnews on Sunday.
