Foreign rebels fled Pakistan creating chaos in north: Ulumi
KABUL (Pajhwok): After flushing out of foreign militants in the wake of Pakistan’s military operations, the influx of Chechen, Uzbek, Tajik and other militants have started attacks on Afghan security forces in northern Afghanistan, the country’s interior minister said on Sunday.
Noor-ul-Haq Ulumi said Pakistan’s anti-militants offensive in North and South Waziristan tribal regions forced most of foreign insurgents to take shelter in northern part of Afghanistan had started anti-state activities.
Foreign rebels have their sanctuaries in Badakhshan, Kunduz, Takhar, Faryab, Baghlan and several other northern areas where they shared same culture, languages and physical appearance with locals, the minister added.
“We will hunt every terrorist who is involved in creating chaos in Afghanistan. And building peace in the country is our top priority,” he pledged.
Security has been deteriorated worse in northern parts of the country where Yamgan district in Badakhshan has been fallen to Taliban. The security forces took control of the check posts for a short period which they retreated to avoid civil casualties, the interior minister said.
The chivalry and sacrifices of police were praised in the gathering. Syed Mohammad Yazdan, chief guest at the meeting, demanded the official concerned to provide all privileges to affected and disabled policemen.
