Involved in a terror attack against a Sikh gurdwara in Kabul and an attack on a US base in Bagram, this is the second attack on a joint terror network between the Haqqani group and ISKP, the first is the arrest Aslam Farooqui, “emir” ISKP in early April.
Successive attacks have proven links between ISI, LeT, the Haqqani network, and Pakistan’s ISKP, according to the Afghan National Directorate of Security (NDS). News of the raids came even when the US special envoy to Afghanistan, Zalmay Khalilzad arrived in New Delhi to meet with Indian officials. Khalilzad met with foreign affairs minister S. Jaishankar, NSA Ajit Doval and foreign minister Harsh Shringla on Thursday to discuss the future of Afghanistan and the US-Taliban. peace process. The peace agreement is increasingly tenuous with increasing violence by the Taliban, who believe they have won and will control Kabul with a political and governmental system that will return all profits in the country, as well as potentially becoming a front-line for terror for Pakistan. Jaishankar and Doval “emphasized that ending terrorist safe haven and asylum is needed for lasting and sustainable peace and stability in Afghanistan” according to the MEA reading.
The last few weeks have shown this. An NDS statement on Wednesday said they raided “terrorist hideouts” in three operations late Tuesday – two in PD11 Kabul and another in Shakar Dara district, 25 km north of the capital. According to the NDS, five terrorists were killed in the operation and eight others were injured.
This group is a joint network of Daesh / ISKP-Haqqani led by Sanaullah – this group is also responsible for rocket attacks on President Ghani’s inauguration ceremony, attacks on Sikh temples in Kabul, attacks on Afghan politicians gathered during the ceremony Mazari, and two attacks on Bagram airfield which holds the largest US base in Afghanistan.
This attack occurred after the arrest of Pakistanis and ISKP emir Aslam Farooqui in early April, which clearly produced valuable intelligence not only on group members but also their relations.
According to sources in Kabul, it is increasingly clear that Pakistan uses LET to plan and provide resources for attacks, while the Haqqani network, widely known as the most violent group of Taliban groups execute them, leaving the ISKP to take responsibility, creating a level of denial with Pakistan.
During their meeting on Thursday, Jaishankar and Doval told Khalilzad that India would continue to support “peace, security, unity, democratic and inclusive government and protection of the rights of all parts of Afghan society, including Hindus and Afghan Sikhs. India is very concerned about rising violence and supports calls for an immediate ceasefire and needs to help the people of Afghanistan in dealing with corona virus pandemic. India remains involved in expanding humanitarian food and medical supplies to Afghanistan to deal with the situation created by coronavirus. “Khalilzad was accompanied by Lisa Curtis of the US National Security Council.
