The article named "the most famous" non governmental organizations currently operating in Afghanistan under the Taliban regime as "CARE International, UNICEF, ICRC, NRC, AKDN, Save the Children..." adding that a big compound of the UN located n the Paktiakot area of Kabul City... "the evidence of the maliciousness and heresy of the Taliban and the cooperation of this misguided group with the infidels."
The last paragraph of the article is calling on Afghans to stay away from NGOs& encourage the youths to join the ISKP and fight against the Taliban.

2. Perfect security forces: Killing of civilians in check points, use of big IEDs in Kabul during ... ImageImage
...the anti-ISKP operations and destroying entire buildings, extrajudicial killings..., are not indicators of well trained state security forces.
3. Comprehensive Security: The attacks of ISKP against High-Profile targets&increasing level of violent crimes, reject the TB claim...
4. Currency stability: 40 million cash USD injection per week, by UN & low amount of Afghani banknotes in the country, are some of the reasons for the currency's stability.

#Hostage_situation in #Bannu:
Armed militants of unknown group stormed an installation of the Counter-Terrorism Department (#CTD) of #Pakistan in Bannu, released dozens of prisoners and took 9 PAK security forces, including Major Khorshid Akram (as militants claim) hostages...
...In an unverified video, they claimed that they are 35 people and asking PAK Army to provide them safe #air_transport to #AFG (in ten minutes), in exchange for the release of all hostages. They warned to kill all 9 hostages& will fight till death, if their #demand was rejected. Image
While it is early to comment, but the wording of the hostage takers in Bannu (using respectful words to PAK army), their demand (to be airlifted to AFG)& the overall scene, seems to be 'staged'...a #victimization drama of PAK& to prove that AFG is safe haven for terrorists.

#AFG Mawlawi Mehdi Mujahid , an influential Hazara member of the Taliban, has broken away with the Taliban after he was fired as head of intelligence of Bamyan. He says 10 million Hazaras are sidelined and disenfranchised from political space by Taliban. Balkhab, Saripul.
Taliban’s rift with Mowlawi Mahdi is over the proceeds of coal mines in Balkhab. There has been a hike in demands for coal in Pakistan after the energy prices went up and the decade-long unmet energy shortages in Pakistan. Since collapse of the Republic, Pakistani businesses
flocked to the north to reap the spoils of an unregulated market and all the coal from the mines in the northern Afghanistan is now being exported to Pakistan at dirt-cheap prices.
