SUPREME LEADER ADMONISHES SECURITY FORCES, ISSUES NEW CONDUCT ORDERS – After several cases of ill-disciplined troops reportedly abusing citizens were discussed and elevated by elders, the Supreme Leader of the Taliban saw fit to issue a new order that limits what Taliban personnel can do to non-combatants. The order specifically forbids any Taliban member from beating people with sticks, whips, cables, or any other form of abuse without a court order. He specifies that only a court has the right to issue punishments to people in Afghanistan.
TALIBAN OFFER TO MEDIATE TALKS BETWEEN PAKISTAN AND THE TTP – The chief spokesman for the Taliban, Zabiullah Mujahid, told reporters that the regime would facilitate negotiations between Pakistan and the militant TTP as long as the result would be beneficial to regional stability.

Most observers see the development as potentially positive for regional peace and stability.
