Afghanistan Terrorism Report: June 2022

Following is the June 2022 installment of “Afghanistan Terrorism Report.” The authors provide a monthly analysis concerning the developing terrorist threat in Afghanistan as well as a comprehensive overview of that month’s al-Qaeda and ISIS-K propaganda.

ISIS-related propaganda continues to portray an image of high operational tempo in Afghanistan. In June, highlighted incidents concentrated on the east of the country, the capital Kabul, as well as Peshawar and Bajaur in Pakistan, illustrating that ISIS-K’s operational area continues to extend into Pakistan. Furthermore, Kunduz and Mazar-e Sharif in the north remained consistent targets for ISIS terror attacks. ISIS propaganda outlets highlighted two incidents in June. Both were attacks on government officials and individuals working in government facilities: airport staff in Mazar-e Sharif and prison guards in Kabul. While in previous months, ISIS propaganda outlets mainly claimed attacks on what they termed “Taliban militia,” and in May, attacks on electricity infrastructure were conducted. Therefore, it seems possible that ISIS tactics will attempt to disrupt government functions in the country and continue targeting Taliban fighters and security officials.

Map of incidents highlighted by ISIS-K social media propaganda in June 2022

Interestingly, one of the most significant incidents in Afghanistan was hardly featured in ISIS-linked propaganda. On June 22, one of the most severe earthquakes in nearly two decades affected Paktika and Khost provinces in the east of Afghanistan, killing around 1,000 individuals and injuring nearly 3,000 individuals. This tragedy could have been an opportunity for ISIS to demonstrate that apart from violence, it is also interested in garnering public support by providing aid to locals in the affected area. The fact that pro-ISIS propaganda did not highlight this demonstrates that the group continues to identify itself purely as a destructive terror movement and, despite its criticism of the Taliban regime as illegitimate, does not attempt to compete with it within the realm of civic governance. The only significant mention of the incident in pro-ISIS propaganda outlets located by the Counter Extremism Project (CEP) was a short criticism that India allegedly provided more support to the victims than other Muslim countries. This emphasis on terrorist operations is also highlighted again by the June 17 issue of the Voice of Khorasan web magazine, which devoted several articles to summaries of attacks and explained the importance of fighting as a core element of ISIS ideology.

In June, ISIS propagandists covered the brutal attack on a Sikh Temple in Kabul, killing two and injuring several others. This attack was allegedly in response to an Indian politician’s offensive comments about the Prophet Muhammad and occurred while India was in the process of reopening its embassy in Kabul. The violence can be seen not only as a message to the Indian government—which as a consequence of the attack, issued over 100 emergency visas to Hindus and Sikhs wishing to leave the country—but also to other governments planning to reopen their embassies that the security situation in Kabul remains challenging. Nonetheless, India reopened its embassy with a “technical team” on June 23, 2022, mainly to coordinate humanitarian assistance.

Similarly, pro-ISIS propaganda criticized the visit of Iranian officials to the province of Khost as an example that the Taliban regime is eager to cooperate with countries that ISIS perceives as hostile to its version of true Islam. Khost province is the home of the Haqqani clan and, until the Taliban takeover in August 2021, was a center of insurgent and al-Qaeda activity, including the famous attack on Forward Operating Base Chapman by an al-Qaeda double agent in 2009. This official visit also indicates that Iran—which previously concentrated its activities on the west of Afghanistan, particularly in Herat—is examining an increased geographic scope of its activities. During the visit, the Iranian Deputy Ambassador to Kabul Hassan Mortazavi discussed the delivery of humanitarian aid and trade opportunities.

As part of its broad delegitimization campaign against the Taliban regime, pro-ISIS propaganda outlets continue to highlight Taliban infighting and the killing of suspected ISIS members. In June, tensions between Pashtun and Hazara factions of the Taliban flared up. To gain increased control over some of the country’s coal mines, the Taliban challenged Mehdi Mujahid, a Hazara leader and senior Taliban figure in Sar-e Pol Province, in the north of the country. Consequently, this military operation seems to have displaced a significant number of Hazaras in the country, creating additional humanitarian challenges for this ethnic group.

The brutality of the Taliban regime’s countermeasures against ISIS in the country was highlighted at the beginning of July when reports emerged that the Taliban may have summarily executed over 100 suspected ISIS members in the east of the country. The issue of extrajudicial killings was also taken up by the regular report of the Secretary General of the United Nations to the U.N. Security Council concerning the situation in Afghanistan and the activities of the United Nations Assistance Mission to Afghanistan (UNAMA).

As in previous months, pro-ISIS propaganda highlighted the close connection between the Taliban and al-Qaeda and therefore emphasized that al-Qaeda has delegitimized itself. The pro-ISIS web magazine released on June 17 characterized both the Taliban and al-Qaeda as American creations. ISIS’s continued obsession with the U.S. government as well as actual and potential U.S. actions regarding Afghanistan was demonstrated with pro-ISIS outlets not only featuring a recent report of the RAND Corporation but also the latest update report of the Special Inspector General for the Reconstruction of Afghanistan (SIGAR) from April 2022.

As in previous months, ISIS continues to highlight that despite the Taliban ban on drug production in Afghanistan in April, the production of opium in the country continues, regardless of some eradication efforts being showcased by the Taliban. Pro-ISIS propaganda outlets explained that the ban was not only introduced following the poppy harvest in Afghanistan but also resulted in the Taliban's monopolization of drug production in the country. Outside observers also are doubtful about the ban’s impact on the country’s overall level of drug production.

Additionally, a video released by ISIS West Africa Province on June 14 explained that the Taliban in Afghanistan are apostates, elevating the standing of ISIS’s Afghanistan affiliate within the terror group’s global network.

  • June 3: Telegram post stating that the RAND Corporation endorsed negotiating with the Taliban to achieve American interests.

“#Scandal. The Crusader Rand Corporation says that dealing with the Taliban militia has the greatest potential to achieve American interests.

The RAND Corporation is one of the biggest enemies of Islam today. They said they had three options with the Taliban militia. Engagement, isolation or opposition. The worshipers of the cross chose to engage. This says a lot about Taliban 2.0

  • June 6: Telegram post condemning al-Qaeda for supporting the Taliban, who are alleged to support freedom of religion and are trying to build good relations with the United Arab Emirates.

“Has this unbeliever been expelled as infidel? O fools of Al-Qaeda: This is your national Taliban, which you gave as a deal for your hand, so he pledged allegiance to your dementia to listen and obey!!

The breach has widened on Al-Raqi’, and testifies to their actual unbelief, so here they are citing that the reality of the situation in Afghanistan is in contrast to what was mentioned by their master America with its unfair report on them, and that the minorities in Afghanistan, regardless of their beliefs, enjoy complete and absolute freedom in the practice of their rituals and religious rituals, so there is no problem with the Emirate. The Islamic ruling is that the Hindu prostrate to a cow, or seek blessing from its dung publicly during the day, and even in the sight of the Taliban fighters and even by protecting them, or insulting the Rafidites, the Mother of the Believers and the Companions of the Messenger of God - may God’s prayers and peace be upon him.

These impure people contradict the clear texts of the Qur’an, and completely contradict the intent of what they ascribe to. So here are your masters, O fools of the fools, after they were able - as you claim - from the land, they allowed the polytheists of all kinds to associate with God - the Almighty - each in his own way, and God Almighty says: If they are able to do the land, they will be established, and they are the righteous, and they commanded the Ma’arouf, and it is forbidden for the sake of God.”

“#Loya_jirga: (Pashto: loya jirga, "the great gathering")

It is a special type of jirga, or assembly of government, in Pashtunwali*, which is the customary tribal law of the constitution of the Pashtun people. It is organized mainly to choose a new tyrant of the state in the event of a sudden death, or the adoption of a new Kufri constitution, or to settle national or regional issues such as war or any other conflict. The Loya Jirga predates the written or immutable positive laws of modern times and is mostly preferred, to a lesser extent, by other neighboring groups influenced by the Pashtuns.

In Afghanistan, the Loya Jirga has been organized since at least the early 18th century when the Hotaki and Durrani dynasties rose to power.

---------------------------------

#Pashtunuli (Pashto: Pښtonuli) is a traditional way of life and is best described as a symbol of honor for the Pashtun people, in which they live and is matched by the intolerance of nationalism and patriotism.

It was interpreted by Pashtun elders as ‘the path of the Afghans’ or ‘the law of life’. Pashtunwali is widely practiced by the Pashtuns in the Pashtunistan regions of Afghanistan, Khyber Pashtunkwa and northern Balochistan.

The history of #Pashtunwali goes back to pre-Islamic times

The apostate Taliban is still on trial in the Loya Jirga with the tribal elders, and the apostate Taliban is made up of at least 90% of the Pashtuns and the organization has a severe ignorant diet for the Pashtun ethnicity.”

  • June 9: Telegram post stating that a former Kabul chief of police stated that the Taliban have not implemented Islamic law because they are afraid of “Western criticism” and “fear…Western reaction.”

“#Khorasan. For the third time, the leaders of the apostate Taliban militia met with the representative of the Aga Khan Organization for the Rafidah Ismaili.

It is reported that the leadership of the apostate militia has invited the polytheist Aga Khan to visit #Afghanistan.”

  • June 9: Telegram post stating that Iran is increasing their influence in Sunni areas of Afghanistan.

“#Khorasan. With the help of the apostate Taliban militia, Magus Iran is gaining a foothold in the exclusive Sunni areas of Afghanistan that have no historical, religious or cultural ties with Iran or Shiites at all.

The Deputy Ambassador of the Rafidi Majusi Hassan Mortazavi, affiliated with the Majusi Revolutionary Guard, visited the province of #Khost at the invitation of the apostate Nabi Omari, the governor of the apostate militia in the province of #Khost.

This is the first visit of an Iranian delegation to the far east of #Afghanistan.

During the visit of the Deputy Ambassador Al-Majusi to Khost, the two sides discussed the presence of Iranian businessmen in the province, and officials of the apostate Taliban militia announced their readiness to develop trade relations with Iran.

The eastern regions of Afghanistan had no importance in the relations between Iran and Afghanistan, due to the distance and insecurity, but recent visits by Iranian officials to Khost and Nangarhar show that Iran is taking a more comprehensive look at its diplomacy in Afghanistan.”

  • June 9: Telegram post criticizing the Taliban for fighting only to take over Afghanistan and not continuing to fight as a “global jihad.”

“#Khorasan. A member of the apostate Taliban militia says in an interview: ‘I wished to be a martyr, but the jihad is over, and now I have to find a job and a wife...’ The apostate Taliban declared it openly that its fight was for the sake of ruling the country only, a fight for power and nothing else, and that it would not allow anyone to use its idol as a starting point for global jihad. And it started sending telegrams of reassurance and love for the infidels as a whole, especially the protector of the cross, that there is no fear for them in the country of the Afghans.

#Notice. We posted the clip as it came and did not modify it.”

Rejecting the Hazaras, who are hostile to us because of them, the apostate Al-Qaeda militias fight us for their sake. They bite the hand that protected them, brought them close, enabled them from the necks of Muslims, protected their temples and pampered them until they overpowered them.

Now the apostate Taliban militia is completely besieging the Belhab area in Sari Pul province and continues to mobilize it for a military operation. At the same time, the former militia members from Bani Radhaf, the supporters of Mullah Mahdi, were placed on high alert, and the former Rafidi leader in the militia cut off all contacts with the central Taliban.

Most likely, a military operation of the apostate Taliban militia will start against their rebel brothers in the region and set their eyes on Iran, because it will inevitably defend the Rawafid Hazaras.”

The farmers noted that before the ban, the apostate Taliban began buying tons of opium to store in their warehouses, and now all trade passes through the apostate militia leaders who cover these businesses.

At the same time, the farmers involved in these actions noted that even if the apostate Taliban decided to significantly reduce domestic consumption of opium, drug smuggling to Pakistan and Iran would continue actively through the mediation of the militia leaders themselves.

A despicable nationalism shown by the apostate Taliban, as it began to worship the idol of patriotism and made it a tyrant that it owed Tartars of the apostate Al-Qaeda in their unclean neck, a great pledge of allegiance to these people.

Previously, you used to join the militia and say ‘bad branch and good branch’ and today your patches are hot in them by the devil.”

Then in the end it became clear that the entire editorial of the Taliban magazine centered on the victory of Jerusalem and Palestine, by building a model of the Dome of the Rock, with an area of 17 square meters, and a height of 9 meters.

This is the value of Jerusalem for the temple guards and the protectors of idols.”

India has so far issued 111 e-visas to Sikhs and Hindus in Afghanistan to allow them to flee the country. It was also reported that the Indian Ministry of Foreign Affairs suspended the work of opening an embassy in Kabul, which was planned after a trip by Indian diplomats to meet representatives of the Antichrist Emirate, due to fears of a terrorist attack.

Although the Antichrist Emirate is trying hard to pacify and downplay what happened, including through promises of the pagan Sikh community to rebuild the destroyed temple with their own money and provide heavy security...

After the advent of the Dajjal Emirate in Afghanistan under American sponsorship, a serious economic crisis began, and the new apostate government could not fight it and had to rely on the humanitarian assistance of atheist nations. At the same time, there was a sharp increase in drug production in the country; which were sold directly in the city markets for more than half a year with complete and willful inaction by the militia leaders; Among the poor population, they are increasingly resorting to drugs as a way to escape from reality, and because the #Dajjal_Emirate is not able to give any alternatives, but rather its direct complicity in the production and sale of drugs has been proven.

In the photos, drug addicts gather under the Paul Sokhta bridge and in the slums of Kabul to use heroin and methamphetamine on a large scale, most of them were working in Iran and there they got addicted.

The Antichrist Emirate, and to show off to the West, last fall sent thousands of them to Ibn Sina Hospital for treatment, but the result was a lack of funding and a total disappointment.”

“#Nangarhar. The Taliban killed two men from the city, who were described by the local media as sectarian ‘people of hadith.’ They were killed on the suspicion that they were connected to the ‘Muslim Jamaat’ operating under the name ‘Wilayat of Khorasan.’

‘Ahl al-Hadith wa’l-Athar’ is a description given to the followers of Ibn Hanbal's approach to the 'Aqeedah-Aqidah. Usually, Ahl al-Sunnah like to describe themselves as ‘Ahl al-Hadith.’ As well as the so-called Salafism, with its various correct and ill orientations, and regardless of their orientation, they were both killed on suspicion and without evidence, and they falsely accused us of it, so they did it today. The city of Nangarhar is one of the most prominent strongholds of the group and its detachments in Afghanistan. Aren't these Afghans worthy of life like the Shiites or the Hindus, O Taal-Ban!?”
