Aibak attack retaliation to ruthless raids: Taliban

Aibak attack retaliation to ruthless raids: Taliban

Jul 14, 2020 - 19:54

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Talibaninfo-icon have welcomed completion of the first phase (135 days) of their Doha agreement with the US, saying they did not attack foreign forces during the period.

In a statement the Taliban said the attack in Samangan on Sunday and similar escalation of violence in other areas were in retaliation to the launch of operations by government in Kabul and ruthless attacks on civilians like in Sangin district of Helmand and violations of commitments by the American forces.

“It is a welcomed and positive step that the United States and its foreign allies have reduced the number of their forces and vacated five bases in accordance with their commitments under the agreement.”

The statement read: “The delay in completion of the first condition of the agreement – the prisoner release process – in this period is very unfortunate due to it becoming a cause for the delay of intra-Afghan negotiations and comprehensive peace. There should currently have been even more prisoners released alongside the provided list”.

 The issue of blacklisting of leaders of the Islamic Emirates remained unresolved, it said, calling it a cause for concern that must be given serious consideration and practical approach.

 No attacks were recorded against foreign forces by the Mujahideeninfo-icon of Islamic Emirate following the agreement which shows that the Islamic Emirate is committed to the contents of the agreement.

The statement claimed American forces and their internal supporters over the course of these 135 days frequently carried out bombings in non-combat zones, supported offensive operations by the Kabul administration forces and flying Afghan aircrafts by American pilots to carry out airstrikes against civilians, Mujahideen and public infrastructure.

In just the past ten days, the Americans and their internal supporters repeatedly carried out drone strikes and bombings in Logar, Badghis, Maidan Wardak, Ghazni, Zabul, Uruzgan, Helmand and Kandahar and carried out two raids.

“These all are blatant violations of the agreement and a deliberate attempt at provoking the Mujahideen towards large-scale attacks. “

 The Islamic Emirate again called on America and related sides that the swift and complete implementation of the Doha agreement was in the interest of everyone.

“This opportunity must sincerity be taken advantage of, the process not obstructed nor delayed and the situation stopped from spiraling towards further mistrust, peril and problems”.

The American side must not afford a very small specific circle an opportunity to muddy water and catch fish, rather the interest, views and demands of the entire nation must be respected
