Comment by the Information and Press Department on “unidentified” helicopters’ missions to support extremists in northern Afghanistan

Thursday, 23 August 2018 11:55

We again point to flights by “unidentified” helicopters in northern Afghanistan to deliver arms and ammunition to local ISIS militants and the Taliban cooperating with this terrorist group. Specifically, Afghan media and local residents claim that these flights have been recorded in the Sar-e Pol Province.

We note that this is happening in the direct vicinity of Central Asian states’ borders and many ISIS militants in Afghanistan hail from these countries. There is no reaction to these events either from the Afghan security, defence and law-enforcement agencies or the command of the US/NATO contingent deployed there.

A legitimate question arises in this connection as to who is behind these flights? Who is arming the terrorists and secretly creating their bases near the southern borders of the CIS? Why is this happening in a situation where the NATO command is actually in control of Afghanistan’s airspace?
