AKIPRESS.COM - The acting Defense Minister talked about the presence of Tajikistan and Pakistan fighters in attacks in Afghanistan, TOLO News reported.
Mawlawi Mohammad Yaqoob Mujahid said that during their operations in recent years, several of these fighters were killed and dozens of others were arrested.
This official of the Islamic Emirate emphasized that ISIS has been defeated in Afghanistan and once again assured the commitment of the Islamic Emirate not to use Afghan soil against other countries.
The acting Defense Minister on the last day of 2023, in the news conference of the Security and Clearing Affairs Commission, in the government media center, while presenting the security achievements in the last 12 months, said that after the Islamic Emirate came to power, in most of the attacks on mosques, the monasteries, religious scholars and popular gatherings were carried out, Tajikistan and Pakistan fighters were involved.
Mawlawi Mohammad Yaqoob Mujahid added that as a result of launching joint security operations, a number of these fighters have been killed and hundreds of them have been arrested.
Mawlawi Mohammad Yaqoob Mujahid said: "After the Islamic Emirate came into power, the attacks on mosques, monasteries, religious scholars and public gatherings were all carried out by foreigners, especially the citizens of Tajikistan. Dozens of Tajikistan citizens have been killed in our operations and dozens of others have been arrested. Also, in the second step, Pakistani citizens have been involved in organizing many attacks. More than twenty Pakistani citizens have been killed in the operations of our security forces, and dozens of others have been arrested alive."
He emphasized that any military action against the Islamic Emirate is considered a rebellion, and whoever rebels against the Islamic Emirate, the forces of the caretaker government are committed to destroy them.
Mawlawi Mohammad Yaqoob Mujahid once again asked the neighboring countries to seriously control their land and air borders.
He said: “In Afghanistan, security is ensured throughout the country. The incidents of evil and seditious circles have decreased by 90% in the past twelve months compared to the previous twelve months. After the end of the invasion and corruption [coming of the Islamic Emirate into power], almost all of them have been suppressed.
Their operational networks have been destroyed, the leaders and designers of the bloody attacks and those in charge of their destructive networks have either been killed or arrested.”
