Remarks of spokesman of Islamic Emirate regarding killing of 14 civilians in Balkh
Reports from Balkh province’s Zari district say that unknown gunmen killed 14 unarmed civilians earlier today.
We strongly condemn this incident. Such acts whether carried out due to personal animosity or by intelligence circles must be condemned. These acts are being perpetrated to breed fault lines, intolerance and discrimination amongst difference nations.
We call on our nation to be vigilant of all enemy plots, not be influenced by mere propaganda and to discern the real culprits of ailments and take a strong stand against them.
The Islamic Emirate will exert full efforts in finding the perpetrators of this crime and hand them over to Shariah law.
Spokesman of Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan
