“While the NA will not attempt to excuse the possibility of black sheep amongst its fold, it must be stated unambiguously that it will not condone any form of sabotage or aiding and assisting the enemy by any personnel. adsbygoogle || []).push({}); ”

The military noted that they have always been observing the rules of engagement and principles of fundamental human rights.

The controversial Islamic cleric had at various times tried to mediate between government and bandits to no avail.
