The Ongoing Jihad Has Entered A New Dominant Phase
19 January 2016
By Al-Ikhwah Al-Mujahidun
To achieve its vitality and objective, every struggle goes through different
phases during its toil and tussle, taken from birth to growth and then
achieving eventual aims and objectives.
The ongoing Jihad inside Afghanistan has gone through all these phases over
the last fourteen years of its struggle against the world infidel powers.
This Jihadi struggle was launched in its embryonic phase against the
unilateral, illegitimate and brutal occupation of western invaders. Initially,
it meant only the survival of Jihad and existence of a limited number of
Mujahidin, who jeopardized their lives in the darkest nights and warmest days
for the sake of rejuvenating this Jihadi struggle through invitations,
motivations and a few symbolic operations against the enemy.
Initially, the proper treatment of injured persons and affordability of
offensive operations were painstaking tasks for Mujahidin therefore they
resorted only to remote control mines against the foreign invaders as well as
their internal stooge forces.
With the passage of time, Jihadi operations became echoing as they emerged
from the obscurity of nights into the broad day lights. Mujahidin launched
their operations as the vulnerable centres and check-posts of the enemy were
brought under direct ground and missile attacks and our Jihadi struggle
entered into a new phase.
A vital phase among the evolutionary stages of Jihad during last fourteen
years was the control of villages and mostly rural areas throughout the
country by Mujahidin. This phase lasted for several years and the enemy, both
foreign invaders and their internal mercenary forces, tried their best to halt
this process by launching huge operations, brutal night raids and
indiscriminate bombardment, blind drone strikes and formation of notorious
Arbaki militia but all in-vain. And eventually Mujahidin managed successfully
to tighten their control and increase their influence and presence in rural
and suburban areas in different provinces of all zones of Afghanistan.
At the zenith of this stage, geographically vast areas came under Mujahidin's
control and the enemy was confined and restricted to the centres of
administrative unites, key military bases and to some extent only to the main
highways of the country.
In the wake of ‘Azm' (i.e. Resolve) Jihadi operations launched in the spring
of last year, our struggle entered an entirely different and extraordinary
phase in which tens of districts were captured and liberated from the stooge
enemy throughout the country.
Previously the collapse of even a single military post was considered a
humiliation for the arrogant enemy especially the foreign invaders assumed it
an embarrassment for their might and supremacy and they used to do their
utmost for regaining the areas lost. And one of the great achievements of
successful ‘Azm' Jihadi operations is that now the enemy has become used to
losing districts one by one sometimes several per week. Most of these
districts are completely evacuated by the enemy. Having lost the courage to
defend the districts and having left with no other option for concealing
humiliation, the defeated and embarrassed enemy has now resorted to shifting
the centres of these lost districts to other places which are comparatively
safer for them.
For instance four vast districts in ‘Ghazni' province were completely
conquered and liberated by Mujahidin of the Islamic Emirate but the so called
administrative centres of these districts were reopened by the stooge regime
of Kabul in the capital city of this province. Similarly a few days earlier
‘Kharwar' district of ‘Logar' province was liberated by Mujahidin but the
enemy announced that the centre of this district will remain operational in
‘Khwaja Angur' area of ‘Charkh' district situated in ‘Logar' province.
Likewise remedy was sought by the stooge enemy in Farah, Badakhshan and
Helmand provinces after losing control of several districts in these areas. It
is deducible that after liberating numerous districts, if some provincial
capital is captured by Mujahidin perhaps the puppet regime might inaugurate
the administration of that lost province inside Kabul too. Verily this
approach of the stooge enemy reveals their utter ineptitude and impending
In brief we can summarize the specifications and achievements of current
Jihadi operations in the following points:
During the new Jihadi process, Mujahidin mostly targeted the centres of
districts and tens of these districts are liberated by them. This phenomenon
is the most salient features of this phase. Most of these district centres are
still under Mujahidin's control. Consequently their grip and influence has
The district liberation process is concurrently going on
throughout the country. Inside Badakhshan, Herat, Helmand, Ghazni, Paktika and
Kunduz provinces, these operations are equally incessant.
The remnants of unrestrained Arbaki militia and police
forces are crushed and expelled from all rural areas and suburbs of central
cities in the wake of these Jihadi operations. Most areas like ‘Kunduz'
province, which was once the stronghold of Arbaki militiamen, are now
completely liberated from them.
During these operations, the enemy was badly defeated and
embarrassed by Mujahidin. Inevitably the enemy was completely demoralized
while losing self-confidence as well as their increasing internal mistrust.
Accusation of fifth-column for foreigners is observed among them on high
official level. Authorities have lost their trust among their subordinates.
Consequently, the security forces and other officials have resorted to
surrender to Mujahidin of the Islamic Emirate.
Ammunition supply was one of the most critical issues for
Mujahidin. But after capturing huge depots and confiscating enormous bounties,
they are now fully self-sufficient in all kinds of light as well as heavy
weaponry and artillery. Currently all kinds of military equipment including
hundreds of armoured vehicles, tanks, rangers and heavy artillery are in their
Besides capturing district centres, Mujahidin have
concentrated on controlling main highways. In this series, most segments of
the central and circular highway have frequently been blocked by Mujahidin for
the enemy in Baghlan, Faryab, Badghis, Farah, Zabul, Ghazni and Maidan-Wardak
provinces. The enemy cannot move freely and safely anywhere on this highway as
they are always a vulnerable and easy target for Mujahidin.
Like the district centres, the enemy is threatened by
Mujahidin in several provincial capitals. The centre of ‘Kunduz' province was
practically conquered by Mujahidin which was subsequently evacuated by them
due to some military considerations. In addition the capital cities of Urzgan,
Faryab, Zabul, Saripul, Maidan-Wardak, Ghazni, Baghlan and various other
provinces are easily accessible for Mujahidin. After significant advances in
‘Babaji' district in ‘Helmand' province, Mujahidin are at the threshold of
‘Lashkar Gah' city, the capital of this province.
The discipline and demeanour manifested by Mujahidin of the
Islamic Emirate during the liberation of central ‘Kunduz' city and its
adjacent districts has tremendously increased their popularity among the
sincere and patriotic masses of our beloved homeland. During these conquests,
no private or public assets were damaged by Mujahidin. No complaint of
looting, plunder, cruelty and aggression is filed by ordinary local people
against them. No disputes of bounties among Mujahidin is reported neither was
any chaos observed. It rocketed the reputation and prestige of Mujahidin both
nationally and internationally.
Nevertheless this new phase of Jihadi process is quite
significant and decisive which identifies the rise of Jihadi movement and the
decline of both the foreign invaders as well as the stooge enemy. We sincerely
pray to Allah Almighty that like all previous phases, this phase of our holy
struggle may succeed and result in the overwhelming victory and liberation of
our country and the restoration of divine Islamic Sharia here!!!
