Taliban killed, wounded 422 Afghan forces in last week

Afghan government, Taliban to hold first peace talks in Doha


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


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.

Taliban killed 291 Afghan security personnel in one week – gov't


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


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.


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


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


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.



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


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.
