The Taliban has called on Afghans to drive American forces out of their country, just like the USSR was defeated 25 years ago.

In a statement released on Saturday, the 25th anniversary of the Soviet withdrawal, Taliban spokesman Qari Yousef Ahmadi said the USSR’s forces had killed innocent people, but Afghanistan stood against them and defeated them.

According to Dawn News, Ahmadi urged Afghans to “deal with today’s invaders as they dealt with yesterday’s invaders.

He added that there is no difference between our jihad of yesterday and today. (ANI)
