Remarks by spokesman of Islamic Emirate concerning the latest attack in Kandahar

Post via Islamic Emirate

The Islamic Emirate made clear its stance and distanced itself on the very first day from the attack which took place Kandahar on 10/01/2017.

However it was repeatedly observed that the Kabul administration officials – seeking to cover their internal rivalries and plots against it each other – blamed the attack on the Mujahideen in order to keep the hand behind this incident concealed and to target the Islamic Emirate with negative propaganda. Similarly the enemy wants to create a wedge between the Islamic Emirate and United Arab Emirates, that had nationals present at the site of the incident, with such a rumor.

It must be reminded that on that same day, the Islamic Emirate executed attacks on enemy forces in Helmand and Kabul and accepted their responsibility. If the Kandahar incident had anything to do with us, we would have announced it similarly.

The Islamic Emirate had good relations with the United Arab Emirates in the past and still seeks good relations with it. It shall never carry out attacks against their nationals and officials when they arrive to extend aid to our countrymen and neither is it the policy of the Islamic Emirate to target relief agencies and workers.

There is intense game of tug-of-war taking place between enemy officials in Kandahar over distribution of power, money and other matters and the latest ambiguous incident in Kandahar province is the result of this struggle.

If it was not so then firstly, the transfer of explosives into such a secure location is nearly impossible and secondly, if the attack was the work of the Mujahideen then surely it would have been executed when their prized target – the police chief – was present. That the police chief left the gathering three minutes before the explosion, this itself should raise a lot of eye brows.
