A senior army official in the central province of Bamiyan spoke of efforts by some groups to destabilize the province. Mulla Mohammad Shireen, the commander of the 5th Brigade of the 203rd Mansouri Corps, did not provide names of these groups, but stressed that the security forces would not allow anyone to disrupt security.
“There are foreign gangs here and they are trying to disrupt security and cause various problems for us and you, they are just spending money ... ” he said.
A convoy of the Islamic Emirate forces went to Bamiyan to ensure the security of the province.
1,500 troops, armed with light and heavy weapons, left Paktia for Bamiyan.
But who are the threats to this province?
“There is talk of a second resistance, we ask all the people of Bamiyan to work with us so that the security of Bamiyan is not compromised,” said Allah Mohammad Bakhtyar, head of Planning and Operations of the Fifth Brigade of Mansouri Corps.
Meanwhile, a number of Bamiyan residents criticize what they see as the persecution of the people by the forces of the Islamic Emirate.
“Everyone who came here, created check points, nobody listened to the governor's speeches, the people were harassed,” said the elder of the tribe.
“Whoever is in charge must not betray the pure goals of the martyrs,” said a religious scholar.
Earlier, there has been reports of increased resistance activities in Panjshir, Kapisa and Parwan provinces.
Army officials in Bamiyan say that they will counter any activity of their opponents, and apparently one of the reasons for the deployment of this army brigade in Bamiyan is to contain possible threats in the coming spring.
