Abdullah seeks serious probe into Zabul house attack

Abdullah seeks serious probe into Zabul house attack

Oct 26, 2015 - 17:56

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Abdullah Abdullah on Monday ordered a serious investigation into an arm assault on a house in Khak-i-Afghan district of Zabul province, saying Daesh or Islamic State group wanted to divide Afghans on religious and ethnic lines.

Asadullah Kakar, a member of the Zabul provincial council, said some residents of Jaghori district of central Ghazni province late on Sunday night forced their way inside a home in Khak-i-Afghan district, killing the owner and taking 13 others, including womeninfo-icon and children, with them.

He said the attack was carried out in revenge for kidnapping some residents of Jaghori district by Daesh fighters some weeks back.

Kakar said the Khak-i-Afghan district was not in control of the government and that they had started efforts at de-escalating the situation with mediation of local elders.

Zabul Governor Gul Islam Syal said he was unaware of the incident.

Dr. Abdullah Abdullah directed security organs to fully investigate the incident while presiding over a Cabinet meeting in Kabul.

The CEO said what Daesh did had nothing to do with a particular tribe or religion but they represented terrorism, crime and horror. “One of their conspiracies is to deepen tribal and religious divisions and we all should be alert in thwarting them.”

The CEO also appreciated security forces’ efforts at maintaining security on Ashurainfo-icon Day.
