SHIBERGHAN (Pajhwok): Residents of Darzab district of northern Jawzjan province on Tuesday protested against the killing of three youth by Daesh affiliates.

Two days back, Daesh militants killed the three youth in Garam Jar village of Darzab district after a clash with police.

The protestors, carrying corpses of the victims, arrived in Shiberghan, the provincial capital. 

They said Daesh fighters on Sunday night attacked Garam Jar village and destroyed many houses and kidnapped five civilians and killed three of them later. Two other civilians were still in Daesh captivity, they said.

Haji Khudai Rahm, the father of the three slain brothers, said, “My sons were shepherd and they had no connection with any group or the government. Daesh in the past too had killed my two nephews.”

With tearful eyes, he said his sons left behind 15 children and he did not know what to do.

Sher Ali, a local influential elder, said Daesh commanders, including Qari Hekmat, Mullahinfo-icon Nader and Ghazanfar, after being defeated by police during a clash entered their village and took five people hostage in revenge.

He said the militants shot dead the young men and two children were still in their captivity.

“Daesh gunmen took away everything from people, they took horses, hens, dogs and everything,” Ali added.

A woman from Garam Jar village, who wished to go unnamed, said Daesh militants when entered the village did not respect anyone including womeninfo-icon. They searched all people and stole jewelries and precious items from people’s homes.

She said some families migrated to Shibebrghan, the provincial capital, after the Daesh attack.

Deputy Governor Eng. Abdul Rahman Mahmodi also said Daesh rebels torched around a hundred houses and killed 10 livestock in the district.

“We have sent a team to the area to investigate the incident and identify the affected people so they are later provided with aid,” he said.

He said the incident was not new as in the past too, Daesh militants had committed such activities.
