Afghanistan
US launches airstrikes on Taliban training camps
2018-02-07
[LWJ] The US military launched a series of airstrikes on Taliban training camps located in Afghanistan’s remote northeastern province of Badakhshan, which borders Tajikistan. The camps were used by the East Turkistan Islamic Movement (ETIM) and other terrorist groups.

“Over the past 96 hours, US forces conducted air operations to strike Taliban training facilities in Badakhshan province, preventing the planning and rehearsal of terrorist acts near the border with China and Tajikistan by such organizations as the East Turkistan Islamic Movement and others,” Resolute Support announced in a press release.

According to Resolute Support, the airstrikes also “destroyed stolen Afghan National Army vehicles that were in the process of being converted to vehicle-borne improvised explosive devices.”
The secondaries must have been glorious.
The strike took place in the district of Warduj, a US military officer told The Washington Post. FDD’s Long War Journal has assessed Warduj to be under Taliban control. The district has changed hands several times over the past 4 years. The presence of camps in the district is further evidence that the Taliban controls the district.

Badakhshan, once a peaceful province, has become a Taliban hotbed since the US withdrew the bulk of its forces after the troop surge ended in 2012. Of Badakhshan’s 28 districts, LWJ assesses three to be Taliban controlled and another nine to be contested.
Another of President Obama’s achievements about to be erased by his successor, one hopes.
The East Turkistan Islamic Movement (ETIM), which is also known as the East Turkistan Islamic Party, is an al Qaeda-affiliated jihadist group based in Afghanistan and Pakistan and operates throughout Central Asia.

ETIM’s emir has served on al Qaeda’s shura, and it has operated a training camp that was sponsored by Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda. After the Taliban lost control of Afghanistan in 2001, the ETIM established training camps in Pakistan.

ETIM fighters have fought alongside the Taliban and other jihadist groups against Coalition and Afghan forces since the US first invaded Afghanistan in 2001.

The US has previously targeted ETIM leaders inside Pakistan in its drone campaign. In Aug. 2010, the US thought it killed Abdul Haq al Turkistani, the emir of the ETIM, in a drone strike in North Waziristan, Pakistan. Turkistani later re-emerged in a video in 2015, and said he was severely wounded in the 2010 drone strike. Abdul Haq issued another in 2016 that took al Qaeda’s side in its dispute with the Islamic State.

The US was also thought to have killed Emeti Yakuf (a.k.a. Abdul Shakoor Turkistani), in a drone strike in Pakistan in Aug. 2012. Yakuf took control of the ETIM as Turkistani was recovering from his injuries, and also took control of al Qaeda’s network in Pakistan’s tribal areas in 2010.

Parties call strike over scholar’s kidnapping
2017-09-11
[DAWN] QUETTA: Political and religious parties of Balochistan
...the Pak province bordering Kandahar and Uruzgun provinces in Afghanistan and Sistan Baluchistan in Iran. Its native Baloch propulation is being displaced by Pashtuns and Punjabis and they aren't happy about it...
on Saturday condemned the kidnapping of Jamaat Ahle Hadees provincial chief Maulana Ali Muhammad Turab and said they would observe a strike in the city on Sept 12.

Speaking at a joint presser, Senator Hafiz Hamdullah of Jamaat Ulema-e-Islam
...Assembly of Islamic Clergy, or JUI, is a Pak Deobandi (Hanafi) political party. There are two main branches, one led by Maulana Fazlur Rahman, and one led by Maulana Samiul Haq. Fazl is active in Pak politix and Sami spends more time running his madrassah. Both branches sponsor branches of the Taliban, though with plausible deniability...
-Fazl, Maulana Abdul Haq of Jamaat-e-Islami
...The Islamic Society, founded in 1941 in Lahore by Maulana Sayyid Abul Ala Maududi, aka The Great Apostosizer. The Jamaat opposed the independence of Bangladesh but has operated an independent branch there since 1975. It maintains close ties with international Mohammedan groups such as the Moslem Brotherhood. the Taliban, and al-Qaeda. The Jamaat's objectives are the establishment of a pure Islamic state, governed by Sharia law. It is distinguished by its xenophobia, and its opposition to Westernization, capitalism, socialism, secularism, and liberalist social mores...
and Maulana Abdul Qadir Luni of Jamaat Ulema-e-Islam-Nazaryati as well as many other leaders demanded taking all possible steps for early recovery of the kidnapped leader.

They warned that political and religious parties and members of the civil society would mount a massive protest if the authorities failed to meet their demand.

They said a strike would be observed in the bustling provincial capital on Sept 12, adding that future line of action would be devised in view of the government’s response.

Most of the leaders were of the view that the provincial government had failed to maintain law and order in Balochistan as the religious scholar was kidnapped in broad daylight along with his son and two others.

Report: Congress 'Misled' About Taliban Five to 'Settle a Campaign Promise'
2015-12-13
[PJ Media] As the House Armed Services Committee released a lengthy report on President Obama's swap of five Taliban detainees for Bowe Bergdahl, one former Guantanamo detainee took a bow this week as a new spokesman for al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.

The House report covers the transfer of Taliban communications chief Mohammad Nabi Omari, deputy minister of intelligence Abdul Haq Wasiq, interior minister Khairulla Said Wali Khairkhwa, deputy minister of defense Mohammad Fazl, and senior military commander Mullah Norullah Noori in May 2014 to Qatar.

Chairman Mac Thornberry (R-Texas) noted that since that moment, the committee has been conducting an investigation into the actions of then-Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and senior Pentagon officials.

Afghanistan
Taliban rejects Qatar's extension of travel ban for ex-Guantanamo detainees
2015-06-04
[Khaama (Afghanistan)] The Talibs group in Afghanistan rejected that the authorities in Qatar
...an emirate on the east coast of the Arabian Peninsula. It sits on some really productive gas and oil deposits, which produces the highest per capita income in the world. They piss it all away on religion, financing the Moslem Brotherhood and several al-Qaeda affiliates...
have extended travel ban for the group's big shots who were freed from Guantanamo last year.

A statement by the Taliban group said the released Taliban leaders "will live freely anywhere the Islamic Emirate deems necessary in accordance with the agreement."

"Reports circulated by the media about extension of conditions are untrue while the Islamic Emirate considers all further action by America concerning the stipulations as a violation of the principles of the agreement and international law," the statement added.

This comes as a US official said earlier this week that the authorities in Qatar have agreed to temporarily extend travel bans on five senior Taliban leaders released last year from the prison at Guantanamo Bay.

The official further added that the ban would remain in place until diplomatic talks for a longer-term solution are completed.

The five senior Taliban leaders -- Khairullah Syed Wali Khairkhwa, Mullah Mohamad Fazl, Mullah Norullah Noori, Abdul Haq Wasiq and Mohammad Nabi Omari, who were in exchange for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.
