Govt Under Fire After Daesh House Found In Kabul
2018-02-01
[ToloNews] Residents of Qala-e-Wahid in Kabul on Wednesday blasted security agencies and said they need to step up efforts to prevent turbans from infiltrating the city.

This comes a day after the National Directorate of Security
...the Afghan national intel agency...
(NDS) raided a ISIS house in the area.

"Property agents renting houses must take warranties from those who want to pay rent for houses and they should keep a copy of their identity documents.

It should be clear who is renting a house and who lives there," said Gulzaman, a resident of Qala-e-Wahid, where the ISIS house was found.

"Security agencies have no surveillance in this area. We don’t often see police force members here," Mohammad Ismail, a resident of the area said.

Some residents said they were shocked when they heard about the ISIS house in their area.

"Those who were in the house were speaking Farsi. One of them left the house in the morning while another went out in the evening," Zuhoorullah, a resident of the area said.

"There were three men and a woman in the house. The woman gave money to my brother to do shopping for her," a resident of Qala-e-Wahid, Rahimshah, said.

The ministry of interior meanwhile said it has started intelligence operations in all parts of Kabul.

"We have sent new forces to vulnerable areas. All the intelligence organizations continue their efforts to identify gunnies and other suspects," said Nusrat Rahimi, deputy front man for the Ministry of Interior.

The National Directorate of Security said it raided a ISIS facility in Kabul’s PD5 on Tuesday and seized a large cache of weapons and ammunition.

The NDS said the house was used in the run up to the military academy attack on Monday ‐ and was thought to have been used to plan the attack.

"There are RPGs, there is a boom jacket, each box in it has two kilograms of explosives, each of them has eight kilograms weight," said one NDS officer after the raid.

NDS said the arrest of one ISIS holy warrior during the attack on the military academy on Monday led to the discovery of the house.

Security forces have however carried out a number of operations in the same area in the past.

#1  And when they say "under fire" in Afghanistan, they mean mortars - at least.
