IEA’s Spokesperson Statement Regarding the Airstrikes of Pakistan in Afghanistan

Last night at around 3 o'clock in the Barmal district of Paktika province and in Afghan Dubai area of Sepera district of Khost province, Pakistani planes bombed the houses of civilians, as a result, 6 people including 3 women and 3 children were martyred and a house destroyed in Paktika, as well as, two women were martyred due to the collapse of a house in Khost province.

The person named Abdullah Shah, who the Pakistani side claims was targeted in the incident, is in Pakistan, on the other hand, there is a tribe living on both sides of this region who have daily trips and close relationship.

The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan strongly condemns these attacks and calls this reckless action a violation of Afghanistan's territory.

The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, which has a long experience of freedom struggle against the superpowers of the world, does not allow anyone to invade its territory.

The people of Pakistan and the new government should stop some army generals from the continuation of their wrong policies for the benefit of others like the last 20-year and spoiling the relationship between the two neighboring Muslim nations.

Pakistan should not blame Afghanistan for the lack of control, incompetence and problems in its own territory.

Such incidents can have very bad consequences which will be out Pakistan’s control.

The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan does not allow anyone to harm anyone's security by using the territory of Afghanistan.
