Taliban Say No ISIS, Al-Qaeda In Country As String Of ISIS-K Terror Attacks Rock Jalalabad

A string of explosions struck Taliban vehicles in Afghanistan’s provincial city of Jalalabad over the weekend, killing eight people, among them Taliban fighters.

ISIS claimed responsibility for the attacks.

The Taliban are under pressure to contain ISIS militants, in part to make good on a promise to the international community that they will prevent the staging of terror attacks from Afghan soil.

There is also a widely held expectation among conflict-weary Afghans that the new rulers will at least restore a measure of public safety.

“We thought that since the Taliban have come, peace will come,” said Feda Mohammad, a brother of an 18-year-old rickshaw driver who was killed in one of September 19th’s blasts, along with a 10-year-old cousin.

“But there’s no peace, no security. You can’t hear anything except the news of bomb blasts killing this one or that,” Mohammad said.

The weekend bomb blasts served as a reminder of the threat the militants pose.

On September 21st, the Taliban said that there was no evidence of Islamic State or al Qaeda militants being in the country, despite the attacks.

Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid rejected accusations that al-Qaeda maintained a presence in Afghanistan and repeated pledges that there would be no attacks on third countries from Afghanistan from militant movements.

“We do not see anyone in Afghanistan who has anything to do with al Qaeda,” he told a news conference in Kabul. “We are committed to the fact that, from Afghanistan, there will not be any danger to any country.”

On August 26th, as American and foreign troops completed their withdrawal and frantic airlift from the country, ISIS suicide bombers targeted U.S. evacuation efforts outside Kabul international airport in one of the deadliest attacks in Afghanistan in years. The blast killed 169 Afghans and 13 U.S. service members.

The events have bolstered fears of more violence, as ISIS militants exploit the vulnerability of an overstretched Taliban government facing massive security challenges and an economic meltdown.

“They’re making a very dramatic comeback,” Ibraheem Bahiss, an International Crisis Group consultant and an independent research analyst said of Islamic State. “There could be a long-term struggle between the groups.”

Despite the significant Kabul Airport attack, Mujahid denied the movement had any genuine presence in Afghanistan though he said it “invisibly carries out some cowardly attacks”.

“The ISIS that exists in Iraq and Syria does not exist here. Still, some people who may be our own Afghans have adopted the ISIS mentality, which is a phenomenon that the people do not support,” he said.

“The security forces of the Islamic Emirate are ready and will stop them,” he said.

Terrorist against terrorist 😄

Séamus

The Taliban are Afghan citizens who fought and won against the US/UK/NATO terrorists occupying their country. Perhaps a little education would stop you repeating the inane propaganda of these western scum….how many people have they butchered in the ME in their attempt to steal every available resource ?

Robert

So its who against Who? the plan is working well, use their jihadist teaching to slaughter their own, FAILED STATE IS THE CHECKMATE, THE VICTORY SIGN

racist australian

taliban is doing fine and just leave them alone. how they live their lives are none of anyone’s business. the taliban has the popular support, without which they wouldn’t have been able to get rid of the imperialists.

Chris Gr

HTS also has a lot of support in Idlib. What does that mean?

Michel LeBlanc

Dat plan of yours is as good as the toilet paper its written on.

Look at you monster, gleefully cheering people killing each other on the other side of the world.

Fucking coward is what you are.

Chris Gr

You support Assad and Taliban (who support HTS) at the same time so you are a big joke.

YankeeGoHome

Thanks to their “jihadist” teaching that they faithfully followed, they got rid or two major terrorist groups – US and NATO. Now they can concentrate on the paid terrorists – ISIS/Blackwater terror groups

Ahson

bullshit nigglet! you fucking dalit get played time and again. Yous a nigger. Admit it punjabi dalit. I’d fukking revert you to hendu ya bastard. Yous a hendu by culture.

there are no resources to steal! Stealing them resources 10,000 miles away and making it worthwhile is not profitable at all. Lets get real no? These invasions by the west were to kill and genocide sunni wahabbi dalit. That’s all there’s to it. Everyone cheered on no?

Michel LeBlanc

Morron, these isis are american foot soldiers, while the taliban( means student) are the people of afghanistan.

Your just another white trash peice of crap, ive seen hundreds like you here.

Chris Gr

Deobandi people of Afghanistan. Ok. ISIS were also the people of Iraq but very radical people right?

F PRUNIER

En effet, les USA sont partis. Mais en laissant leurs petits terroristes chéris soutenus également par UK.
Las de jouer les sauveurs contre les talibans qu’ils ont eux mêmes créés dans les années 70, il espèrent maintenir une situation de chaos sans fin avec ISIS et HTS, leurs dernières petites créations.
L’idée est d’empêcher toute stabilité afin d’empêcher ce pays de prospérer et de permettre à la Russie et à la Chine d’y prendre pied. Les USA sont dirigés pas une mafia s’assassins Judeo-Khazars à l’oeuvre depuis le massacre des Indiens d’Amériques. Une vraie bande de pauvres types.

Robert

I admire the way the Muslims are cleverly being marched on down the abyss of FAILED States as their children and women groan in pain inflicted from their own teaching, the UN-holly book, the Qaran

Ahson

it ain’t the Qaran……theys psychological slaves from millennia. Iran needs to institute a program to revert them back to lower caste hendu that they always were. Push em back toward hendu these sunni wahabbi lower caste bastards.

‘ISIS’ in SDF captivity in east Syria keep getting released and moved around by US forces. One obvious destination is US base at al-Tanf where they are freshly re-stamped as ‘US sponsored rebels’. Where else might CIA Blackhawks fly them in local region, off to Central Asia to cause chaos against Taliban in Afghanistan? Fits the US’ (read Abraham Elliot’s) violence-based, divide and conquer, foreign policy strategy perfectly

Ahson

The US and Eliot Abrams and a thousand others have long done the damage via their sawdi, turkish and pakistani toady. If ISIS is there or anywhere, then these three piece of shit sunni/ wahabbi countries are involved in facilitating the ISIS endeavor.

Chris Gr

Taliban and HTS are the same.

Michel LeBlanc

Not at all, your an ignorant twat.

Taliban won against nato, HTS cant fight their way out of a paper bag, keep getting rescued by turkey.

Chris Gr

Jihadists from HTS, jihadists from Nusra of Mali and jihadis of Al Shabaab are praising the Taliban. Hamas does the same. Read the news and stop provoking people.

YankeeGoHome

Blackwater is busy again spoiling the fun. Solution – Close all western embassies. Only allow Russian, Chinese, Iranian and Pakis to have diplomatic missions, then rout these terrorists.

Robert

Never count Russians on you dirty Muslims, Russian money from the oligarchs finances London, Russian gas powers Europe…they are Europeans. They are dividing the spoils of war with Americans.
Btw, your friends the Chinese say Islam is a fraud and they are re educating urgus

Irani

Lol, so head choppers became the government and now new kid ISIS-K becomes the new rebel force fighting old terrorist, how ironic it is, and fuck that shit that the Taliban fought against the nato bullshit people keep repeating here they are as bad as them with killing the afghan civilans, so fuck nato and fuck the talib bitches and also FUCK DAESH.

Ahson

Well put bro…….well put! All smoke and mirrors. All corrupt motherfucker terrorists. I hope Iran buries them all alive!
