Taliban leaders accuse the United States of liberating ISIS prisoners

OpEd by ⎛⎝DH⎠⎞

On June 21th, the spokesman of Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, Zabihullah Mujahid, released a statement on an operation supposedly cared out the US special forces. I first reported on this just after the release of the statement.

Here are some quotes from some of our local sources in Afghanistan, you be the judge.

“Last night USA and Kabul administration troops once again rescued #ISIS leaders & fighters by helicopters in  Kunar province. Since a week #Taliban’s red units, elite forces and local fighters began large scale operations against Daesh in Kunar & Noristan provinces. Taliban began operation from Korangal and Kordal strategic valleys, they succeeded to control it in first night. Taliban forces kept advancement in both provinces, Daesh forced to leave their strong holds and move to high peaks of mountains, where followed by Taliban too. Daesh leaders and fighters refuged to a village of Noor Gul district in Kunar province which named Charkando. Last night Taliban prepared to capture them alive or to finish, meanwhile tens of US helicopters entered to the area and landed, they rescued all ISIS fighters.

US forces spokesman says, the statement of Taliban about rescuing Daesh is not true, nonetheless the whole world see these photos and those helicopters rescued ISIS militias in Jowzjan. Flash reports say, over 100 tanks moved toward Sokai district to rescue other Daesh groups.


The children of @ARG_AFG and the children of nation, Ashraf Ghani is happy with them but don’t know what is going on in the country.

In fact he knows the situation of the country, he orders to kill everyone who lives outside of his controlled territory!”

Here the copy of the statement by Zabihullah Mujahid.

“Besieged Daesh_leaders in Kunar again rescued in American aircraft.

For about one week now, the Mujahideen of Islamic Emirate have launched decisive operations against the scourge and phenomenon of Daesh in various areas of Kunar province.

The people of Kunar have also stood shoulder to shoulder with the Mujahideen in their operations against Daesh militias.

Just as most areas of Kunar were cleared of Daesh criminals and their leaders and members forced to take refuge in Charkando area of Noor Gul district’s Mazar valley, tens of American aircraft accompanied by hundreds of Kabul administration ground troops arrived at Mazar valley last night from where they airlifted Daesh militia leaders, members and families along with their weapons and equipment and safeguarded them from Mujahideen attacks and detention.

This is the umpteenth time that American invaders have rescued Daeshi militias that fall under Mujahideen siege from where they are transferred to American bases and centers.

This crime is taking place as these same American invaders and their domestics mercenaries frequently talk about combating Daesh and seek to prolong their occupation by misusing the name of Daesh.

Our Muslim people and the international community at large must understand that the militias operating in Afghanistan under the name Daesh – who ruthlessly murder civilians, religious scholars and tribal elders and indiscriminately target and bomb mosques, civilian gatherings, rallies and other civilian places in cities – are a tool of the criminal American invaders who aid and support them every step of the way.

Keep in mind, the Taliban are masters of propaganda and they have motivation to twist the truth.  When listening to stories from them always keep in mind all of the US troops they have killed over the past 18 years. Also how they try to validate and normalize their terrorist activities, while pretending to be some form of a governing party.
