On the other hand, the Taliban leadership has been trying to assure the people of Afghanistan that there will be no revenge since the occupation of Afghanistan. But, given the brutality of the 1990s, there is fear among the people about the possibility of the Taliban changing.

The report of this Taliban search operation has been prepared by the RHIPTO Norwegian Center for Global Analysis. This group provides intelligence to the United Nations.
