KABUL - The Kabul police asked parents to stop their children from using firecrackers, driving fast, and brawling during the three days of Eid-ul -Fitr.
The use of firecrackers or other explosives could create confusion for the people and problems for the police, a statement issued by the 101st Asmayee Police Zone said.
"Whenever there is any incident or suspicious activities, please inform the nearest police checkpoint," the statement said, requesting that residents cooperate with the police in maintaining security in the city.
According to the Ministry of Interior, as many as 13,500 police have been tasked with maintaining Kabul security during Eid-ul-Fitr. With special security arrangements put in place, residents of Kabul will celebrate the festival in a peaceful environment, the Interior Ministry spokesman, Ghulam Seddiq Seddiqi, told reporters.
Although the Taliban have warned of intensifying attacks, the spokesman said police would stop them in their tracks.
