Report of Investigation team of Islamic Emirate regarding the incident in Kabul’s Shah Shaheed
About two weeks earlier a large suspicious explosion was carried out in a crowded civilian area in Shah Shaheed area of Kabul city, a seemingly aimless attack carried out in the middle of a local homes.
As this incident was perplexing and had no semblance with attacks of Mujahideen and the Islamic Emirate did not wish to place blame on anyone without investigating the matter at hand therefore it dispatched an investigation team to gather witnesses, inquire about the situation and present all collected information to the concerned body of the Islamic Emirate.
After examining all the evidence it was pronounced that this incident has no association with any leaders of the Islamic Emirate and the local Mujahideen leaders of Islamic Emirate around Kabul have no hand in this suspicious blast. Such bombing campaigns are not the aim of Mujahideen nor is it considered any kind of achievement and most importantly, Islamic principles do not sanction such actions. We strongly condemn this incident and whole heartedly sympathize with our countrymen who were either martyred, injured or lost property in this plot. We will strive to research the incident further in light of evidences in order to show our countrymen the motives behind this attack and its actual perpetrators.
The operations by Mujahideen of Islamic Emirate are always carried out with a lot of precaution. The lives of civilians are very precious to us. We will never allow our Mujahideen to ever carry out bombings aimlessly and in crowded areas and will strictly cling onto Islamic rules in this regard.
Initial information about the incident, which was gathered and discussed with locals with much difficulty, indicates that this was a targeted air or missile attack in which a large bomb was deployed that created a huge crater in the ground. The locals also witnessed sounds of aircraft and a power blackout prior to the attack which makes it seem as if this attack was preplanned, probably carried out by foreign forces to blemish the image of the new leader of Islamic Emirate or for some other malicious objective.
