Police officials said Saturday the Taliban has no ability to maintain presence on outskirts of big cities, downplaying the threat made by Taliban militants to hold ground.

Taliban insurgents keep fleeing from one area to another as there is sufficient security capacity to prevent their belligerence, said spokesman to the Interior Ministry Tareq Arian in a video message.

He said that Afghan security and defense forces have massive presence in areas where Taliban claim to have presence. “The enemy will never be allowed to operate and disrupt security,” he said.
