The United States has stepped-up airstrikes in the country as a United Nations resolution calls for help, including a possible humanitarian mission, as coronavirus spreads across Afghanistan.
The U.K. government has said it would assist in the effort but did not immediately provide details about the effort, which is expected to include airstrikes on suspected terrorist sites and support for the Afghan government.
The U.A.E. said it had launched its own airstrikes.
U.S.-led NATO troops are also stepping up airstrikes on the country, including raids against suspected Taliban fighters and a strike on a militant camp.
The Afghan government has accused the Taliban of being behind several attacks on U.P. forces, and U.D.N.-led U.NAIDS has also said it is assisting with the campaign.
The resolution, signed Thursday by the U.NS.
Security Council, calls for an international investigation into the alleged bombing of the U,P.
convoy in the eastern province of Paktika, which killed three U.T. officials and wounded nine others.
It also calls for the establishment of a commission of inquiry into the attack.
In response to the resolution, NATO announced it was going to conduct more joint military operations in Afghanistan.
