4 days after U.S. signs a deal with the Taliban, the fight is on

"Martin on Saturday the United States and the Taliban signed a deal intended as a first step to peace in Afghanistan and the withdrawal of US troops from the country just four days later the US is fighting the Taliban again the US says it has conducted an airstrike against Taliban fighters and hers international correspondent DND joins us now from Islamabad Pakistan DHEA what happened so according to a spokesman for US forces are they conducted an airstrike against Taliban fighters in the southern Helmand province fighters there were talking an Afghan military checkpoint it was the first right against the Taliban since he was signed a deal with them on Saturday and that's meant to see conditional a withdrawal of US and NATO forces within fourteen months up before that deal the Taliban had abided by seven day partial truce but after the deal itself it's been it's been vague whether that meant continued or not so even though this this deal has been signed between the U. S. and the Taliban the Taliban can still attack of US forces or even Afghan right from Wilson the deal is vague on this point and what analysts think is happening right now is that the Taliban a testing the limits of the Americans and the commitment to the steel and the Afghan government and they might have actually been emboldened by recent events consider this on Monday the Taliban announce a resuming their attacks against Afghan security forces and I conducted more than forty just in the Helmand province alone on Tuesday evening president trump called the Taliban's chief negotiator that was the first time an American president has talked directly to anyone in the Taliban following the call the Taliban attacked military checkpoints and killed sixteen soldiers and then miss U. S. S. strike happened in response to a different attack in another part of the country what's the strategy I mean to the extent that you're able can you explain what why this would benefit the Taliban to escalate attacks just after signing this deal with US right what it appears to be is that the Taliban need to continue their attacks because violence is the chief leverage they don't really have anything else and they need to demonstrate their muscle especially as they going forward with negotiations with the Afghan government to settle their place in the future if gonna stop and so on this point I spoke to Andrew Watkins he's a senior analyst at the international crisis group in his in Kabul right now and he says the it's the Taliban Khan really stop stop their attacks because it might de motivate their base what is the Taliban all of a sudden result such an extended road tion in violence but when it calls its fighters to resume in order to put that pressure on the Afghan government what if the fighters don't return the call great so so what does happen next I mean how does this complicate the talks that are supposed to happen between the Taliban and the Afghan government right so what we see now to select a hammering out of the parameters and that the question is like what level of violence will be Americans tolerate in Afghanistan as they prepared withdrawal particularly instead of cons of consecrated forces who let's remember are the allies which the US is effectively funded and trained and because the Americans being vague on what they'll tolerate where probably gonna learn the limits is struck by a strike all right it goes on and here's the deed in the Islamabad thank you DO we appreciate it thank you
