A number of religious scholars, journalists and political figures have recently lost their lives in targeted attacks in different parts of the country.
The Islamic Emirate has rejected such killings each time and labeled it detrimental for the country. It once again proclaims to both our compatriots and the world that such people are not included in our military target lists.
The Mujahideen of Islamic Emirate solely target enemy that is actively engaged in fighting or carrying out espionage activities.
Barring this, lethal action against other people is neither an objective nor in the interest of the future of our homeland.
The Islamic Emirate has had specific targets from the outset of its struggle and unfailingly accepted responsibility for those actions. The Islamic Emirate has never attacked non-military and unarmed personnel over the past two decades, hence allegations by the Kabul administration of baselessly implicating the Islamic Emirate in such attacks are unsubstantiated.
The Islamic Emirate calls on its fellow citizens and the world to identify elements and circles that are engaging in these activities at this critical juncture in order to muddy water and catch fish.
We believe these attacks are perpetrated by those whom oppose the establishment of peace and Islamic system in our homeland. They want to besmirch Mujahideen with such attacks and lay groundwork for the prolongation of occupation of the country.
