On October 15, three consecutive explosions thundered during Friday prayers in the Shiite Bibi-Fatima mosque in the southern Afghan city of Kandahar.
Local TV channel TOLOnews reported 32 dead and over 70 injured. The “Vilayat Khorasan” group, a branch of the “Islamic State” * banned in the Russian Federation, claimed responsibility for the attack. The same group ascribes to itself for a series of explosions August, 26th at the Kabul airport, 3 october at the Idgah mosque in Kabul, October 8 at the Seid-Abad mosque in Kunduz in northern Afghanistan.
After the terrorist attack in Kunduz, the representative of “Vilayet Khorasan” told the world that the explosion was “Retribution for the willingness of the Taliban to cooperate with China,” and the Uyghur by nationality committed retaliation. At the same time, a video of the interrogation circulated on the Internet, in which a member of the “Vilayet Khorasan” taken prisoner by the Taliban admits that he had been trained in the United States. The interrogation is conducted in the Uyghur language.
American media began to write that the terrorist attacks in Afghanistan are carried out by Uighurs, immigrants from the Chinese Xinjiang, and are “Highly symbolic”…
The destabilization of the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region (XUAR) of the PRC is one of the important elements of the American strategy of “containment” of China. Americans support Uyghur extremists of all kinds. In November 2020, the organization “Islamic Movement of East Turkestan” * banned in Russia, declaring its desire to create a caliphate in Xinjiang and Islamize all of China, was excluded from the State Department’s list of terrorist organizations, and the structure Uyghur Human Rights Project, which the Americans hold in Washington, welcomed the decision.
As stated in the 40-page report “Xinjiang: China’s Western Frontier in the Heart of Eurasia”, prepared by Australian experts, “The US and the UK are manipulating the Uyghur diaspora in their own interests”… It also says that the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) **, undesirable in Russia, is now playing the role that the CIA played during the Cold War in supporting separatism. “East Turkestan“ and funding the World Uyghur Congress.
Chinese Ambassador to Kazakhstan Zhang Xiao published a video three years ago in which Lawrence Wilkerson, former chief of staff of US Secretary of State Colin Powell, says that the best way to organize unrest in China is to use the 20 million Uyghurs living in the XUAR.
The United States also stands behind the Vilayat Khorasan terrorists. Former Afghan President Hamid Karzai once called this group “an instrument of the United States.”
Sleeping Afghan cells “Vilayat Khorasan” are reinforced by the transfer of militants from Syria and Iraq. Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova says: “We had many questions about the unmarked helicopter flights recorded since 2017 within the areas of activity of ISIS militants *, especially in the north of Afghanistan … According to Afghan sources, through these aircraft, ISIS troops were supplied with reinforcements in manpower, and weapons were transferred , ammunition. Dead and wounded terrorists were removed from the battlefields … Without the knowledge of the US and NATO forces, which completely controlled the airspace of Afghanistan, such activities simply could not be carried out. “…
According to the Russian president’s special envoy for Afghanistan, Zamir Kabulov, there are now more than 20 terrorist groups operating in Afghanistan, including IS militants. Leaving, the Americans evacuated IS militants from under the attacks of the Taliban in helicopters to the Bagram base, and then they seemed to dissolve. Earlier, Russian Ambassador to Afghanistan Alexander Mantytsky, Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia Igor Zubov reported about the transfer of IS militants from Syria, Iraq and Pakistan to Afghanistan.
“When the Americans realized that in Iraq and Syria, organized terrorist groups had lost their previously occupied territories, they transported them by various routes to Afghanistan, and we are witnessing explosions, terror and new crimes in Afghanistan,” – said back in 2018, the head of the General Staff of Iran, General Mohammad Bakeri. Everything continues now. Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi, Assistant to the Supreme Leader of Iran Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, also said that there is evidence of the transfer of IS militants to Afghanistan by the Americans.
In October 2018, the Tajik portal “Akhbor” reported about the transfer of the “Minister of War” of the “Islamic State” Gulmurod Halimov to Afghanistan. Former colonel of the Tajik OMON, Khalimov trained on anti-terrorism courses in the United States. The number of Khalimov’s militants, who became the commander of the Khorasan Vilayet, reaches six thousand. Now their sleeping cells in northern Afghanistan are activating and taking action.
