Media outlets and the Kabul regime have been circulating reports for the past 2 days that Dostum is headed towards northern Jowzjan province to carry out an operation while today propaganda was launched that Taliban Mujahideen have evacuated Qushtepa district with the arrival of Dostum.
We reject all such rumors and propaganda and declare that Mujahideen are fully prepared to counter any operation being led by Dostum.
The Dostum Gelum Jum militias also touted carrying out operation in some districts of Jowzjan last year but had nothing to show for it. Dostum immediately fled upon his arrival followed by never showing his face till today.
Similarly Dostum also managed to get many of his Gelum Jum militiamen killed at the hands of Mujahideen in Faryab province, who went on to clear many more areas.
Our forces and strong presence still remain in the areas of Jowzjan which are under our control. They are well motivated to combat any operation by the Americans and stooge regime including elements of Dostum’s Gelam Jum militia. Allah willing, Dostum shall regret his decision upon launching this operation.
Mujahideen have not retreated an inch from their frontlines. The enemy forces have been forced to kneel in front of Mujahideen in many other areas including Helmand, Dand-e-Ghori, Kunduz, Faryab and merely seek to raise the morale and spirits of their soldiers with such propaganda.
Unfortunately some media outlets have also sided with Dostum’s Gelum Jum militias, are spreading propaganda and campaigning for him without ascertaining the ground realities or hearing the view of Mujahideen.
We are hopeful that Allah willing Dostum along with his Gelum Jum militia will be liquidated in these operations and will face a humiliating defeat.
