June 2017 – KABUL: The Islamic State has declared war on Taliban militants in Afghanistan as it called the latter “hypocrites and stooges of the unbelievers”. An ISIS commander, in a statement, said Taliban militants are betraying Islam and that they should be killed everywhere and their properties should be seized, reports Tasnim news agency.
Last year in August, Afghan Taliban Spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said that the group is resolved to target ISIS members. Afghanistan has long been facing instability due to continued fighting between the government forces and the Taliban, which seized vast territories in the Afghan rural areas. Also, recently the presence of ISIS forces in Afghanistan even though limited to a small area has further added to its problems.
The terrorist group accused its blood-crazed rival of being “hypocrites and stooges of the unbelievers”.
ISIS has now declared war in Afghanistan over the dispute and renewed warnings to kill its militants, members and supporters in the war-torn nation.
A commander for the murderous cult said properties belonging to anyone associated with the group should be seized.
Reports suggest ISIS forces are currently restricted to a small area in east Afghanistan and are keen to expand.
But it is said to be struggling and rapidly losing soldiers.
It comes after Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said it will continue to fight ISIS in “cooperation with the Afghan nation”.
He added it has launched a campaign against ISIS occupation in Afghanistan, adding it has “prevented the terrorist group from gaining a foothold in Afghanistan”, reports Iranian news agency Tasnim.
ISIS has claimed responsibility for a string of terror attacks in Britain this year.
In March Khalid Masood killed four people after ramming his car into bystanders before stabbing PC Keith Palmer.
On May 22 Salman Abedi killed 22 in Manchester when he detonated a nail bomb at an Ariana Grande concert, before three jihadis killed eight during a knife rampage in London Bridge.
The latest developments come after a Brit general told of how ISIS terrorists are being killed “so quickly they cannot fight back”.
It was also recently revealed how Lee Rigby murderer Michael Adebolajo is reportedly radicalising fellow inmates into ISIS soldiers who “fall under his spell”.
