The Kabul Regime Considers Genocide A Sign Of Success

The Kabul Unity regime is under intense pressure from Mujahideen. They are
daily losing great swathes of territory. Its security forces are facing a
state of imminent collapse. Therefore to vent their anger and frustration, the
regime security forces have resorted to the indiscriminate killing of innocent
Almost a month ago the regime security forces and local militias launched an
operation in Baghlan's Dand Ghori, Shahabuddin and the provincial capital
districts to clear the area from Mujahideen. These operations continue till
now with no visible progress from the regime's perspective.
Since the operation's inception the regime's propaganda apparatus has been
making extravagant claims of capturing large parts of the battle theatre all
the while the frontline has altered very little. To mask their lack of
progress, the regime security forces and local militias have resorted to large
scale bombardment of residential areas where each loss of innocent civilian
life is marketed as an insurgent kill.
The people of Baghlan, intimidated and indiscriminately targeted, decided last
week to hold a sit-in in Kabul to protest the ongoing killing of civilians.
During this sit-in the tribal elders, civil activists and ordinary people
protested what they termed as genocidal policies towards the civilian
populace. They added that the deliberate targeting of civilian areas by the
regime forces have resulted in the death of 125 civilians and injuries to
another 650 individuals.
The protesters also highlighted the fact that the regime's indiscriminate
ground and aerial bombardment has caused property damage to over 17,000
families and displaced a total of over 30,000 families.
The protesters demanded that the administration cease these operations
immediately, compensate the families of those who have suffered as a result of
the ongoing operations and bring those responsible for this indiscriminate
slaughter to justice.
Whenever the foreign occupiers or their internal allies have launched military
operations in Afghanistan they have inevitably harmed civilian people and
property, bombed ordinary homes, killed women and children, and imprisoned
civilians under the guise of collaborating with the insurgents.
Invariably whenever the regime has launched operations such as the current one
in Baghlan they have made extravagant claims of successes, fibbing out
concocted figures of the numbers of insurgents killed or wounded. They also
invariably claim the capture of large parts of territory in spite of what the
ground realities dictate.
