Taliban: ISIS Is A Headache, We Don’t Need US Support

File image.

The Taliban can fight ISIS-Khorasan Province (ISIS-K) on its own without support from the US, Zabiullah Mujahid, a spokesman for the group and Deputy Minister of Information and Culture in its Interim Government, told TOLO News on October 10.

Mujahid said that the Taliban is already conducting operations against ISIS-K cells in Afghanistan. According to the spokesman’s claims, 19 ISIS terrorists have been killed and 16 others have been wounded, so far.

“Daesh [ISIS] is a headache, not a serious threat and it will be curbed. Most Daesh members have been suppressed, their important hideouts have been discovered and we are after them.” Mujahid said, downplaying the threat posed by the terrorist group.

The TOLO News has documented 17 explosions in five Afghan provinces since the Taliban took over the country on August 15. ISIS-K claimed responsibility for most of these attacks. Some 600 people, including fighters of the Taliban, were killed or wounded.

One of ISIS-K most recent attacks targeted a crowded Shiite mosque in the in the northern Afghan city of Kunduz on October 8. The attack, which was carried out a suicide bomber, claimed the lives of more than 50 people and wounded more than 140 others.

Mujahid himself survived an attack by an ISIS-K suicide bomber that targeted his mother’s funeral in the capital, Kabul, on October 3. Several people were killed in the attack.

The Taliban is playingdown the threat posed by ISIS-K in order to promote itself as a legitimate force that is capable of securing Afghanistan on its own.

Nevertheless, the fact stands that ISIS-K remains the single most serious challenge facing the Taliban’s new regime in Afghanistan. The terrorist group is not only targeting Taliban fighters, but also recruiting them.

Despite its repeated statements against the US, it wont be a surprise if the Taliban ended up receiving support from it against ISIS-K.

Of course, why would the Taliban want the parent of Isis to be involved in anyway?

Peter Wallace

Exactly. Now that the Taliban are not fighting the US and the AA they can concentrate their efforts against ISIS. I see all my comments made on RT get deleted in 5 seconds to a minute regardless of what they say. I made a couple of comments to your RT comment just to check if they would get deleted as well and 1 minute later all gone. Everything I said to that US saved Assad nutcase were wiped in 5 seconds flat.

Did you embed any URL’s in your post? If so, you have to heavily modify the URL to get past the algorithm.

Peter Wallace

No none at all. I don’t even try and add URL’s now , for some time after problems. I see now all comments are being marked as spam and deleted with a notice to say I have requested a review which of course I haven’t . It is someone censoring anything I say as they no doubt object.. A put a basic one line comment on just before and kept checking. It was removed in under 3 minutes and marked as spam .which is a laugh..


Anyone can be “isis”. They are not a united force as anglo/zionist propaganda would have people believe.

They can range from ragtag mercs to foreign nations special forces.

jens holm

We dont see ISIS as a united force here in west. You are very much “east” and barkin far out.

The methods to reduce them are the same.

Peter Wallace

Who is “We” jems. Just you and you are always assuming you know where everyone else is from when you have no idea unless they tell you.

Chris Gr

This is probably the truest thing you have ever said.

US & EU are Zion slaves

One, as if the USA gives 2 fuk about these backward Sunnis, the US still fuking hunt Pakistan Gays, it would be the same story with Afghanistan now. How stupid can you fukers be? What the fuk the USA doing in Syria right now.

Two, yeah right ISIS is just a “headache” right now LMFAO. Even now who cares 100+ Shia in Afghanistan die by those SUNNIS Cunts. They are not safe…where is the safety, fuk them and their BS lies…the matter of fact is, Afghanistan under these fuking backward Sunnis will never be safe.
It is so easy for the US/Israel/Wahhabi to kill hundreds of Afghanis because their fuking apes can’t protect civilians for the past 20 years they killed civilians with those terrorists. Remember Taliban leaders are known, terrorists. One of them had his son blow up FFS.
ISIS, Al-Qaeda, and any other fuking terrorist groups are SUNNI – backward Sunnis.


Lol, the IS *is* the US (deep state)
