HIA sees US behind ex-president's death

HIA sees US behind ex-president's death

Sep 21, 2011 - 14:58

JALALABAD (PANinfo-icon): The Hezb-i-Islamiinfo-icon Afghanistaninfo-icon, led by Eng. Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, on Wednesday blamed the US intelligence network for former president Burhanuddin Rabbani's assassination.

The chairman of High Peace Councilinfo-icon was killed by a bomber believed to be a trusted emissary, with a special message from the Talibaninfo-icon, at his house in the Wazir Akbar Khan posh locality on Tuesday.

US-led western intelligence operatives were behind high Afghan officials' assassinations, HIA spokesperson, Haroon Zarghoon, told Pajhwok Afghan News from an undisclosed location.

The killing and violence would continue in Afghanistan as long as foreign troops remained in the country, Zarghoon warned, saying his party had been saddened by the killing of the former president.

In fact, he added, HIA leadership mourned the loss of all Afghans. "It is a matter of sorrow that jihadi figures are supporting the US, whose indiscriminate airstrikes and offensives threaten civilian lives and officials."

The spokesman believed Rabbani had failed to achieve peace in the country. "The party of the ex-jihadi leader had played a role in the government but had no achievement in terms of peace."

Afghanistan had become a safe haven for foreign intelligence workers, said Zarghoon, who accused international forces of fuelling violence in Afghanistan.
