Written by: Staff

Kandahar, Mar 15: Days after the devastating suicide bombings in which 35 people were killed, Taliban said that the suicide attacks were a warning against NATO General's plan to launch an offensive against insurgents in the region.

The bombings showed that the Taliban are ready for the offensive in their heartland around Kandahar province, Taliban spokesman Qari Yousef Ahmadi said.

"With all the preparations they have taken, still they are not able to stop us," Ahmadi said in a news agency report.

Earlier, McChrystal said that Kandahar province is the next target for coalition forces, who had driven out the militants from a town in neighboring Helmand province.

Following which on Saturday, Mar 13, four suicide bombings rocked Kandahar in which 35 civilians were killed and over 46 people were injured.

Officials said that main objective of the blasts was the Kandahar prison and three other blasts were merely to divert attention.
