The Taliban announced a three-day ceasefire in Afghanistan for the duration of the Eid al-Fitr holiday which begins tomorrow.

"In order for the countrymen to observe Eid al-Fitr with satisfaction, all the Mujahideen are instructed or ordered by the leadership to take special measures for the security of the countrymen during the three days of Eid al-Fitr and not to attack the enemy anywhere", the group declared in a statement.

The United States signed a deal with the Taliban in February to withdraw all American troops in 2021.
