KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Talibaninfo-icon on Monday rejected the Afghan military’s claim of killing two Chinese militants in northeastern Badakhshan province as “a baseless propaganda.”

A few days back, the north-based Afghan army’s 20 9 Shaheen Military Corps in a statement had claimed they killed two Chinese militants, including commander Mullahinfo-icon Mustafa.

The statement had no further details about the slain Chinese, but had said Mullah Mustafa was the commander of Chinese rebels in Afghanistaninfo-icon.

However, the Taliban in a statement attributed to their spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid rejected the Shaheen Corps’ claim as untrue.

The Afghan insurgents said government forces arrived in Juram district of Badakhshan and fired artillery that hit civilian homes at a long distance.

The Taliban said there were no foreigners in their ranks and no one by name of Mustafa had been active as a Chinese rebel commander in the Juram district.

The statement read the Afghan government through such shelling wanted to provoke neighboring countries into taking action the Taliban.

The Taliban said countries who were not in conflict with them believed in their just stance for peace.
