CIC research associate Sabir Ibrahimi writes in this Tolo News op-ed that ambiguous rhetoric is creating a false narrative about the cause of increased violence in Afghanistan.

"The US-Taliban agreement in February 2020 created hope for a reduction in violence in Afghanistan," writes Ibrahimi. "However, since then, violence has instead intensified across the country. The American officials have said that the increase in the level of violence goes against the spirit of the US-Taliban agreement."
