Daesh kill 3 own fighters over ‘links’ with Afghan forces

Jul 22, 2017 - 16:20

SHIBERGHAN (Pajhwok): Daesh or so-called Islamic State (IS) militant group has shot dead three of its fighters in Qush Tepa district of northern Samangan province over alleged collaboration with Afghan security forces, local officials said on Saturday.

According to the officials, the slain IS men included Qari Qudrat, accused of killing six International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) members. A brother of Qari Qudrat was also among the dead.

Baz Mohammad Dawar, acting district chief for Darzab, said the IS group transferred the trio from Darzab to Qush Tepa district and killed them there.

He said it wasn’t known if the group had thrown the dead bodies in Qush Tepa district.

Militants affiliated with Daesh attacked ICRC members in the Qush Tepa district in February, killing six ICRC officials and kidnapping two others.

The ICRC after the incident suspended its activities in Afghanistaninfo-icon and two of its members are still in Daesh captivity.

Aminullah, Qush Tepa district chief, said a 20-member group of Daesh transferred the three men to Alam Leek village of the district from Darzab’s Sardara village and killed them at around 4am today morning.

Their bodies were dumped on the outskirts of Alam Leek village. A group of elders reached the village but could not find the bodies.

Aminullah said the trio was killed on charges of collaborating with security forces. “Qari Qudrat along with his brother and another associate had been held captive by Qari Hikmat, general Daesh commander for Jawzjan, for the past 15 days.”

Mohammad Gul, a resident of Darzab, said: “The report of Qari Qudrat’s killing by Qari Hikmat is being circulated from mouth-to-mouth among people since this morning. It’s early to confirm that Qari Hikmat has killed Qari Qudrat and more details about the incident will become clear at the end of the day.”

This is for the first time Daesh group has killed its fighters on the charge of cooperating with security forces.
