BBC News published this video item, entitled “New Taliban offensive drives thousands of Afghan civilians from their homes – BBC News” – below is their description.
The United Nations is warning of a new wave of violence in Afghanistan. Tens of thousands of civilians have been driven from their homes by a major offensive by the Taliban in the southern province of Helmand. That’s where British troops were mainly based — while fighting in Afghanistan. Over 450 British service personnel were killed during a 14 year period. Now the latest fighting is threatening fragile peace talks between the Afghan government and the Taliban.
