Kabul [Afghanistan], Nov. 26 (ANI): The Taliban in Afghanistan has released several photographs purportedly showing the graduation of scores of new recruits.

The group released the latest propaganda photographs amid reports that the leadership of the group is considering options to resume peace talks with the Afghan Government, reports the Khaama Press.

The Khaama Press quoted the group, as saying that the pictures were taken during the training of the militants in Khalid Bin Walid Training Camp, showing the Taliban fighters brandishing weapons and taking part in target practice.

The camouflaged militants appearing in the photographs are believed to have undergone a 45-day training course in the camp to learn military skills and strict implementation of Sharia law.

According to a statement released by the group "150 graduates shone brightly on the battlefields and have been touted by military commanders for their military skill."

Last year, the Haqqani terrorist network also released a similar video which purportedly showed a training camp run by the terror group along with advertisements of the Taliban group's relationship with al Qaeda terrorist network.

The Taliban has been unleashing deadly attacks across the country since the regime was toppled down in 2001. (ANI)
