Taliban killed, wounded 422 Afghan forces in last week

Afghan government, Taliban to hold first peace talks in Doha

Quote

In a joint press conference, officials of the Interior Ministry and National Security Council (NSC) also accused the militants of killing moderate, pro-government religious scholars in two recent attacks in the capital Kabul.

The Taliban, however, have denied involvement in the attacks on the Wazir Akbar Khan and Sher Shah Suri mosques, which resulted in the death of Ayaz Niazi and Maulvi Azizullah.

Tareq Aryan, Interior Ministry spokesman, said as many as 422 security forces were killed and wounded in Taliban attacks in the past week alone.

Javed Faisal, the NSC spokesman, said the ongoing attacks by the militants despite an unannounced cease-fire could jeopardize intra-Afghan peace efforts.

Meanwhile, the NSC on Saturday said attacks by the Taliban killed 89 civilians in the past two weeks.

The release of some 5,000 Taliban prisoners in exchange for 1,000 captive Afghan security personnel, along with a reduction in violence, is one of the main conditions for the start of intra-Afghan peace talks originally scheduled for March.

No date has been announced for the meeting, but it is expected to take place after the two sides settle differences on the release by the Afghan government of 5,000 Taliban prisoners, which could be as soon as the end of next week.

"The first intra-Afghan meeting will happen in Doha," Taliban spokesman Suhail Shaheen told Reuters, adding that the group was ready to hold intra-Afghan talks within a week of the release of 5,000 prisoners.

The Afghan government has released 3,000 Taliban prisoners so far under an agreement signed between the United States and the militants group in February.

That deal outlined a roadmap for withdrawing foreign forces from Afghanistan and peace talks to end the 19-year war.

The government wants talks to begin as soon as possible but has issues with the release of a few hundred high-profile Taliban prisoners, a senior government official told Reuters.

The official said the government had offered an alternative prisoner release list to the Taliban.

The spokesman for the Afghan Presidential Palace, Sediq Sediqqi, said on Twitter that Doha had been agreed as the venue for the first talks but said no permanent venue had been agreed.

At least 18 Afghan forces killed in Taliban attacks

Quote

AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): Taliban militants killed at least 18 Afghan security personnel Wednesday in two attacks on checkpoints in the north, officials said, the latest violence ahead of expected peace talks.

In one pre-dawn raid, militants killed 12 Afghan security force members when they stormed a checkpoint in Jawezjan province, Maroof Azar, spokesman to the governor, told AFP.

He said four security personnel were captured by the militants and five Taliban militants were killed in the fighting.

The ministry of defence confirmed the attack and said six of its soldiers were among the dead.

The Taliban spokesman for the group's fighting forces, Zabihullah Mujahid, gave a higher toll.

Separately, Taliban militants were blamed for a raid on an army outpost in Kunduz.

Six soldiers were killed in fighting that lasted about five hours, said Aminullah Iddin, a member of the provincial council.

Army spokesman Hadi Jamal confirmed the attack, saying four Taliban militants were also killed.

The Taliban has not commented on that raid.

The latest bloodshed comes as the insurgents and the government inch closer towards potential peace negotiations.

Officials claim the Taliban have stepped up attacks in recent days, although there has been an overall drop in violence across the country since the ceasefire ended.

Are Afghan security personnel not humans, not Muslim? What kind of Wahabi group Taliban are, everyone knows. But who is giving them their weapons?

Taliban kidnap dozens of civilians in Afghanistan amid peace efforts

Quote

Local officials said Sunday that the Taliban took the hostages in the central province of Daikundi after a woman escaped a Taliban-controlled village in a neighboring province.

Mohammad Ali Uruzgani, the provincial deputy governor said that more than half were still being held. Some 26 had been released and tribal elders were mediating to free the remaining civilians, he added

A Taliban spokesman denied the kidnapping.

Underscoring the tension, Javid Faisal, a spokesman for the Afghanistan national security council said the Taliban had killed more than 40 civilians around the country in the past week.

"The Taliban have failed to deliver on promises of reducing violence against the Afghan people and working for peace," he said on Twitter.

The United Nations has recently warned of an alarming rise in violence against civilians and a “striking deterioration” in upholding international humanitarian law in Afghanistan.

On Sunday, the UN mission in Afghanistan released a report raising concerns about 15 attacks on health workers and health care facilities during the coronavirus pandemic.

The surging violence comes despite a deal between the Taliban and the United States. Official data shows Taliban bombings and other assaults have increased 70 percent since the militant group signed the deal with the United States in February.

“We expected to see a reduction in violence,” McKenzie said. “While the Taliban have been scrupulous about not attacking US or coalition forces, in fact, the (Wahhabi–Salafi — ed.) violence against the Afghans (especially civilians — ed.) is higher than it’s been in quite a while. It’s one of the highest, most violent periods of the war that we see to date.”

The US signed the deal with the Taliban in February. Under the agreement, the US is supposed to withdraw its forces from Afghanistan, and the Taliban are supposed to refrain from attacking international occupying forces. The militants did not make a pledge to avoid attacking Afghan forces and civilians.

Official data shows Taliban bombings and other assaults have increased 70 percent since then (while the Taliban via their ISI-backed Haqqani network have cooperated with ISIS and al-Qaida to expand their territory – ed.). The United Nations (UN) has also warned of an alarming rise in violence against civilians in Afghanistan.

Source

What is remarkable is the fact that the Afghan government has long complained about the role of Pakistan in sponsoring Wahhabi–Salafi terrorism in Afghanistan, yet never mentions the fact that the U.S. and Israel control Pakistan via their proxy Saudi Arabia and are pretending to safeguard Afghanistan, while covertly backing the very terrorists they claim to be fighting. The Kabul government studiously avoids saying anything negative about its Western masters and instead chooses to depend on the very forces that have been backstabbing it since day one of the West’s post-9/11 intervention in Afghanistan.

Right after 9/11 the West secretly ferried thousands of Taliban, al-Qaida, and other Wahhabi–Salafi militants back into Pakistan, so that the Northern Alliance, now co-opted into the “War on Terrorism,” would never be able to target the West’s proxies. The Pakistani ISI works with the West to dislodge Russian, Chinese, Indian, and especially Iranian influence in Central Asia, including Afghanistan, while at the same time posing as a friend of China’s, even though Pakistan has worked with Turkey and Saudi Arabia to sponsor Uighur terrorism against Chinese Xinjiang. Pakistan is unable to fully enter China’s orbit because it is indebted to the IMF and depends on Saudi financial clout, so, like most countries today, it has no truly independent, nonaligned policy. Now India is collaborating with Pakistan via the Saudis in order to crush Iran and China vis-à-vis Afghanistan.

Remember that the Anglo-Americans and Zionists created both Wahhabi–Salafi ideology and Hindu fascism to control the Indian subcontinent and South-Central Asia.

Unlike in the Iran–Iraq war, Iran is now facing an eastern as well as a western front. If Iran attempts to address the threat to its west, it will face a simultaneous threat to its east.

Amazingly, Iran’s reformist government, along with the Kabul regime, continues to negotiate with the Taliban and include them as part of a so-called comprehensive peace deal, despite the opposition of most Afghans, including the core of the old Northern Alliance (including such figures as Massoud, Dostum, Noor, and Abdullah), to the inclusion of the Taliban under both Hamid Karzai and Ashraf Ghani. Clearly, the West, along with Iran’s reformists, is seeking to impose the Wahhabi–Salafi militants on Afghanistan, with the quiet acquiescence of Russia and China, both of which have also been treating the Taliban as potential partners.

The old Northern Alliance, despite being popular, is improperly equipped and underfunded, so it does not stand a military chance against the Wahhabi–Salafi militants, just as it was about to be massacred, despite many years’ valiant resistance, by the Taliban and Co. prior to NATO’s post-9/11 intervention. If Kabul falls, then Iran is next, as is the whole of Central Asia. The Wahhabi–Salafi flood will target CPEC/BRI from Kashmir to Xinjiang and thence to Iranian Baluchistan and the Caucasus. It has already been targeting the entire Muslim world, including Rakhine State in Myanmar, given the vital importance of the Indian Ocean.

There are too many traitors in the so-called “Resistance” and “multipolar” governments, thanks to the West’s hypnotic propaganda and prolific finance.

My theory is that the West is aiming to start World War III in several different locations, more or less synchronously, including Kaliningrad, Donbas, Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, the Line of Contact in Kashmir, Taiwan, Korea, and of course Venezuela. The bought-and-bribed rulers of most countries don’t care about mutually assured destruction, since they have their private bunkers, underground cities, and/or extraterrestrial getaways, to not mention all the perks of joining the West’s NWO. The West needs 95-100% global population reduction within the next decade in order to bring about the trans-humanist, techno-feudalist NWO.

Iran doubts US intentions in Afghan peace process: Deputy FM

Quote

Iran doubts the US’s intentions for the peace process in Afghanistan for many reasons, and it sees America’s presence in Afghanistan as “dangerous” and that of a "troublemaker" in the region, Araqchi told TOLOnews on Monday.

He added that the focus should be on intra-Afghan negotiations, under the current circumstances.

Elsewhere in the interview, Araqchi rejected reports that the Taliban has an office in Iran.

“As we have had contacts with all groups, we also contacted them (Taliban) and listened to their views and expressed our own views,” the senior diplomat pointed out.

Araqchi added, “All are aware who created the Taliban and supported it and who is now holding talks with them and making a deal with them. It is a clear reality that the United States considers itself an ally of Afghanistan and has also negotiated with the Taliban and reached an agreement with them. We have no such relations with the Taliban.”

Afghan girl shot dead Taliban militants who killed her parents

Quote

AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): An Afghan girl shot dead three Taliban militants after they killed her parents because they supported the government, local officials have said.

The incident happened last week when a group of 40 insurgents stormed the village of Geriveh, in central Ghor province, where 16-year-old Qamar Gul was living with her parents and brother.

Officials said the militants, who were looking for Gul’s father, knocked on the door at 1am on 17 July.

“The insurgents came to their doorstep and her mother went to see who was knocking,” said Mohamed Aref Aber, a spokesman for the provincial governor. “When she saw that they were armed, she refused to open the door.”

Aber said Gul’s mother was immediately shot dead by the attackers, who then entered the house and shot at her father.

According to Aber, Qamar Gul witnessed the death of her parents, picked up her father’s rifle and shot and killed three insurgents. She then started a one-hour battle with the Taliban alongside her 12-year-old brother, Habibullah, he added.

Several other Taliban militants reportedly joined the attack, but some villagers and pro-government militia men expelled them after a gunfight.

Afghan officials have taken Qamar Gul and her younger brother to a safe place in the provincial capital.

“They were in shock in the first two days and could not talk too much, but are in a good condition now,” Aber said. “They are saying: ‘This was our right, because we did not need to live without our parents.’ They don’t have many relatives other than a half-brother who lives in the same village.

 

Quote

The Afghan government praised Qamar’s bravery at a cabinet meeting, and the president, Ashraf Ghani, has invited the children to the presidential palace.

“When I saw them that night, they were shocked but were feeling honoured,” said Mohammad Rafiq Alam, the district governor.

Since the incident, a photograph of Qamar Gul wearing a headscarf and holding a machine gun across her lap has gone viral on social media.

“We know parents are irreplaceable, but your revenge will give you relative peace,” one user wrote in a Facebook post. “They received two titles at one night: heroes and orphans,” another posted. “She is a symbol of bravery and resistance,” said another.

Nearly 1,300 civilians killed in Afghanistan since 2020 began

Quote

In a new report published on Monday, the UN mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) said the country remains one of the deadliest conflicts in the world for civilians.

It said it had documented at least 1,282 civilian deaths from January to June, with another 2,176 people wounded in the same period. Those numbers include 340 children killed and another 727 wounded.

"At a time when the government of Afghanistan and the Taliban have a historic opportunity to come together at the negotiating table for peace talks, the tragic reality is that the fighting continues inflicting terrible harm to civilians every day," said Deborah Lyons, the UN chief's special representative for Afghanistan.

The report identified anti-government armed groups such as the Taliban and ISIL (ISIS) as the main cause of the casualties, accounting for 58 percent of the victims. Pro-government forces were responsible for 23 percent of civilians killed or wounded.

The UNAMA figures represent a 13-percent decline on the numbers of deaths and injuries reported during the same time period in 2019. The report credited the drop in part to the reduction of operations by international forces in support of Afghan government forces and also to a decrease in the number of attacks by ISIL.

The number of casualties - meaning both those killed and those wounded - caused by government forces and the Taliban remained almost unchanged, however. Civilian casualties from Afghan army air attacks tripled compared with the first half of 2019.

"I urge the parties to pause, to reflect on the chilling incidents and the harm that they are causing to the Afghan people as documented in this report, and to take decisive action to stop the carnage and get to the negotiating table," said Lyons.

Death toll from flash floods in Afghanistan rises to 150

Quote

ABNA: Authorities moved more than 900 families out of areas of mountainous Parwan province that were devastated by the flash floods, triggered by exceptionally heavy rain this week.

“The search is still on as many people, we fear, are still buried under the rocks and rubble,” said Tamim Azimi, a spokesman for the ministry of disaster management.

Members of the security forces, officials and survivors have been working in deep mud, searching for any survivors and trying to clear the disaster area for more than 28 hours.

The effort has been hampered by blocked and damaged roads.

At least 250 people were injured.

“The situation is very grim, the scale of loss is intense,” said Azimi.

Survivors said many children were among the dead. The death toll was expected to rise as families prepared for mass burials with extensive rubble yet to be cleared.

Afghanistan regularly suffers from drought but can be hit by very heavy rain during the south Asian monsoon.

Afghan VP Amrullah Saleh escapes deadly bomb attack in Kabul

https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2020/09/afghan-vp-saleh-unharmed-bomb-attack-kabul-spokesman-200909044320211.html

It has to be noted that Saleh is Tajik Sunni Afghan, as Afghanistan is engaged in ethnic conflicts. The Pashtuns, who are mainly Sunni, make about 45% make the president, including the Taliban. The Hazara and other Shia make 25 - 35 % of Afghan population.

"Reliable data on religious demography is not available because an official nationwide census has not been conducted in decades. Observers estimate that 80 percent of the population is Sunni Muslim, 19 percent Shia Muslim, and 1 percent other religious groups."

There are estimation that the number of Shia in Afghanistan is bigger; of course with the genocide in the past decade against Afghan Shia the number goes down.

The Silent Genocide of the Hazara and Shi’a Muslims

The Taliban entered the city and drove through the streets for two days, shooting everything and everyone that moved, including women and children. They forbade the burial of the corpses for weeks, against the laws of the religion they claimed to follow, and allowed the remains to rot and be eaten by dogs in the street.

According to Library of Congress, the Hazara make up 9% of Afghanistan’s population. The vast majority of Afghan Shi’ah are Hazara, and majority of Hazara are Shi’ah, with a significant Sunni Hazara community too. Therefore, the Shi’ah population can’t be more than 15% (very generous estimate – made by the Pew Research Center)

Not unless this alleged genocide cost millions of lives. The killing of a few thousand people doesn’t affect overall trend of demographics in a country of millions of people.

Quote

Plus: Many Shia out of fear of persecution hide their religion in Afghanistan.

How can we determine whether someone is hiding their religion?

The Shi’ah in Afghanistan are almost entirely Hazara. It’s very easy to identify a Hazara because they stand out as a unique racial group in a country of Aryans. There’s no way you can miss the epicanthic fold, the flat nose, and the rounded face like a hammered shield.

In meeting with Abdullah Abdullah;

Iran's President: Intra-Afghan political talks solution to Afghanistan's problems

Quote

Speaking on Monday in a meeting with Abdullah Abdullah, Chairman of the High Council for National Reconciliation of Afghanistan, Dr Hassan Rouhani stated that during the period that Afghanistan was facing foreign aggression, the Iranian nation and government stood by the government and people of this country, adding, "We hope that lasting peace and security will be established in this country and that the people of Afghanistan will live in peace”.

Dr Rouhani stated that the US intervention and presence, as an aggressor in Afghanistan, was not in line with the will and opinion of the people of this country, adding, "The US government, which has failed in its policies in the region and the world, seeks its own electoral interest from peace talks in Afghanistan”.


Abdullah also thanked Iran for hosting Afghan refugees during the years of war and conflict in the country and said, "During my visit to Tehran, I had good meetings with the officials of the Islamic Republic and I will send the message of Iranian support to Kabul and follow the agreements between the two countries”.

Iran's voice in support of peace process important to Afghanistan: Abdullah

Quote

Visiting Abdullah told IRNA on his three-day visit to Tehran that he discussed in detail the intra-Afghan dialogue and future of peace negotiations with the Iranian officials.

Noting that they had close stances regarding issues, he said that the people of Afghanistan want a lasting and acceptable peace for all people, as well as the preservation of the achievements for which they sacrificed.

Cooperation between regional states can help advance the peace process and negotiations and achieves an outcome, he said.

Iran as an influential country has been and will be active in supporting the peace process, Abdullah said, noting, "The voice of the neighboring country is very important to us in consultation at the regional and international level."

As to the latest status of the comprehensive document on Iran-Afghanistan cooperation, the Afghan official said that development of economic relations is necessary for both countries and is in their interest.


Abdullah arrived in Tehran at the head of a delegation on Sunday to hold talks with the Iranian officials.

Top al-Qaeda leader killed in eastern Afghanistan

Quote

AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): A senior al-Qaeda commander has been killed by Afghan security forces in the central city of Ghazni, security officials said.

The Afghan intelligence service confirmed in a tweet on Saturday that Abu Muhsin al-Masri had been killed by Afghan Special Forces in a recent operation.

The National Directorate of Security (NDS) said al-Masri was al-Qaeda's number two commander for the Indian subcontinent.

The senior al-Qaeda commander had been listed among the most wanted terrorists by the US Department of Justice since 2018.

In a statement Saturday, Director of the US National Counterterrorism Center Chris Miller confirmed al-Masri's death, saying his removal "highlights the diminishing effectiveness of the terrorist organization."

Al-Masri had been charged in the United States with having provided material support and resources to a foreign terrorist organization and conspiracy to kill US nationals.

Media sources, citing the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), said al-Masri was an Egyptian national who also went by the name Husam Abd-al-Ra'uf.

The US military and allied governments came to Afghanistan in 2001 under the pretext of fighting terrorism. The record of two decades of presence is black and destructive, Salehi said.

"And whoever kills a believer intentionally, his punishment is hell; he shall abide in it, and Allah will send His wrath on him and curse him and prepare for him a painful chastisement." (Holy Quran 4:93)

A few days after the tragic massacre of the oppressed and defenseless professors and students of the friendly and brotherly country of Afghanistan by criminal ISIL terrorists at university of Kabul, the news of a terrorist act comes again; but this time an explosion at the Tabesh University in Maidan Shar city, which caused great sorrow and regret to the Iranian honorable nation.

Why doesn’t the IRI point out that Pakistan’s ISI is orchestrating these attacks on behalf of the U.S. and Israel? The Afghan Taliban are working with ISIS and al-Qaida to destabilise Afghanistan on behalf of the ISI, CIA, MI6, and Mossad, along with certain corrupt elements of Indian RAW (RSS/BJP elements being funded by ISI and Saudis). Iran needs to temper its ongoing relationship with Pakistan and also withdraw its support for intra-Afghan talks involving the Taliban. The Taliban, including their “Haqqani network,” haven’t stopped being Western puppets and Pakistani proxies, nor have they ceased involvement with ISIS and al-Qaida. All those private military contractors in Afghanistan and Pakistan have been supporting Saudi- and Emirati-financed terrorism in conjunction with other Wahhabi–Salafi allies such as Pakistan, Turkey, Qatar, Malaysia, and Indonesia. Yet Iran continues to support a fool’s errand: that of reconciliation with the Taliban. The Taliban have proven time and time again that they don’t want to reconcile with the Afghan people and government, other than to exploit the talks for military and political advantages as well as gains such as international recognition, all without breaking ties to and support for terrorism and terrorist proxies. Unfortunately, now that India is being run by pro-Saudi Hindu fascists, one shouldn’t expect Modi’s India to serve as a counterweight to the Saudis, given that Russia and China have also been serving the Zionist agenda just as well. The forces of Balkanisation and globalism are alive and well.

Troop Withdrawals

As per 2016 campaign promise, troop cuts in Iraq, Afghanistan and maybe Somalia(500 there).

900 will remain in Syria.

~2500 will remain in Afghanistan

Republicans "are livid."

Kabul terrorist attack example of US proxy war in Afghanistan: FM Spokesman

Quote

Expressing sympathy to the Government and people of Afghanistan, especially the families of the victims of this terrorist act, he said that in the current day's missile attack on different parts of Kabul city, including the diplomatic neighborhood of the city, according to the investigations conducted so far, at least one rocket hit the internal area of the Iranian Embassy in Kabul, resulting in minor damage to some of the embassy's facilities and equipment.

Fortunately, no danger has been posed to Iranian embassy personnel, he continued.

He cited the terrorist attack as an example of a proxy war and the actions of US terrorist allies in Afghanistan and called on the US to take direct responsibility for what happened.

The interior ministry of Afghanistan said that at least three civilians were killed and 11 others were wounded in the rocket attacks.

The Afghan Ministry of Health announced the transfer of five dead and 21 injured to hospitals in Kabul.

Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh said that Saturday morning's terrorist attack in Kabul is an example of a proxy war and what the US terrorist allies usually do in Afghanistan, and reiterated that the US should take direct responsibility for the attacks.

The proxies need to be identified by name: Taliban/ISIS, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Israel, and RSS/BJP elements.

Iran also needs to tell the Afghan government to break off any negotiations with the Taliban.

Pakistan is still a divided and two-faced society run by pro-Western compradors, like Modi’s India.
