On the 6th of Mizan of the current year, the valiant Mujahideen of Islamic Emirate in Kunduz province launched a well-organized operation on Kunduz city and within a few hours managed to break through enemy defense lines and took over the entire city barring the airbase.
In this operation all the below objectives set out by the Mujahideen of Islamic Emirate were not only achieved but expectations were surpassed due to the favor of Allah Almighty.
1. Breaking Kunduz prison which housed hundreds of Mujahideen and other innocent individuals accused of supporting Jihad was a key objective of this operation. All praise is due to Allah, the prison fell under the control of Mujahideen on the initial day of the operation and hundreds of Mujahideen were freed.
2. Kunduz which is considered militarily strategic and a command center for the entire north east provinces of Afghanistan was attacked and taken over by Mujahideen, causing a wave of panic in the enemy ranks as a result of which large areas were completely cleared by Mujahideen with negligible casualties and small scale operations in Kunduz, Baghlan, Takhar, Badakhshan and other provinces of the north. Amidst this advance, Baghlan’s Talaw Barfak district, tens of villages and military bases in Markazi Baghlan and Pul-e-Kumri districts; Takhar’s Eshkamesh, Yangi Qala and Khwaja Ghar districts; Badakhshan Warduj and Baharak districts; Faryab’s Khwaja NaMusa and Garzewan districts; Saripul’s Kohistanat district; Jawzjan’s Kham Aab district; entire districts of Imam Sahib, Qala Zaal and Chahr Dara and large parts of Khanabad and Aliabad districts all fell to the Mujahideen in a few short days while tens of vehicles, hundreds of heavy and light arms and large amounts of other equipment were also seized by the Mujahideen and subsequently transferred to secure locations. Such consecutive conquests had not been witnessed in the recent past.
3. During the conquest of Kunduz city, Mujahideen seized and secured hundreds of various type military equipment, APCs, launchers, tons of heavy and light arms ammunition as well as archived documents from the ministry of national directorate services and other organs. The enemy personnel from soldiers to the governor to the police chief were dispersed so wide that it seems unlikely they can reorganize anytime soon. Some of them even fled the country forever and we can confidently say that the ripple effect of these conquests will have immense positive impact on the military situation favoring the Mujahideen in the near future, Allah willing.
4. The reality that Afghanistan is still being occupied by the infidels was also exposed; because the invaders who had deviously lied about full security transfer clearly demonstrated that they are still directly involved in the war and have not abandoned the thought of occupation due to their continuous bombing of Kunduz and the use of their ground forces. But despite their presence and use of complete force, the Mujahideen proved that they can achieve their objectives in every part of the country and are able to take over key centers and regions including large cities.
The above mentioned conquests in Kunduz and north of the country were achieved with very small and negligible Mujahideen losses and due to the blessing of well-organized operational plans, civilian casualties were also kept at a bare minimum. However as the enemy tried to reclaim its lost honor and began bombing Kunduz city with US air power, they indiscriminately targeted and caused heavy losses to the civilians during the course of which MSF hospital was also bombed, killing all its medical personnel and 105 patients while keeping up their savagery against the locals.
The Islamic Emirate took into consideration the military situation and the fruitless cost of corporeal and material losses to Mujahideen in the protracted battle in defense of Kunduz city and therefore ordered its Mujahideen to withdraw from the main square markets and government buildings to the outlying rural areas of the city in order to reinforce their defense lines and reserve their strength for effective future operations.
We reassure the world and our Mujahid nation that just as the Mujahideen of Kunduz repelled the American and hireling Special Forces backed by air power and made them repeatedly flee towards the terminals of Kunduz airbase, they can at this very moment bring Kunduz city back under their control and once again force the enemy out with the help of Allah Almighty.
Withdrawal from Kunduz city bazaar and government buildings is done purely for the higher interests of Jihad, the main goal of which was to secure the population from air raids and protect the human and material cost of Mujahideen from waste in a protracted defensive battle.
All praise is due to Allah the conquest of Kunduz lifted the spirits of Mujahideen many folds, increased their experience in offensive and urban warfare and further impaired the already sagging morale of the enemy.
To end we thank all the Mujahideen of Kunduz for exceptionally executing the laid out plans, safeguarding the wealth and honor of the ordinary people during combat and preventing any such action from occurring which could have blackened the foreheads of Mujahideen. At the same time they won over the hearts of the entire nation especially the honorable people of Kunduz with their Islamic behavior. Their Islamic and ethical conduct with the enemy prisoners was such that the flow of opposition fighters and workers surrendering and joining Mujahideen throughout the country has also increased. We strongly reject all claims of enemy and foreign malicious circles accusing the Mujahideen of Islamic Emirate of transgressing against the lives, property and honor of anyone. The people of Kunduz are witnesses that the Mujahideen of Islamic Emirate have treated them with respect and have not inappropriate the rights of anyone during their control.
We give glad tidings to all the Mujahideen and our nation that the heroics of Kunduz opened a new chapter in the contemporary Jihad of Afghanistan and Allah willing this heroic will be the beginning of huge Jihadi conquests and emancipation of the country from occupation and the corrupt regime.
Allah willing, and nothing is hard for Allah the Benevolent.
Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan
