Hizb-e-Islami Supporters Stage Protest in Kabul

A big number of Hizb-e-Islami supporters staged a protest in Kabul on Friday in which they gathered near the Presidential Palace and chanted slogans against “those who impede peace efforts.”

The protestors will give the government a 10-day deadline to address their demands that according to Hizb-e-Islami leader Gulbuddin Hekmatyar include an end to (targeted) attacks, an end to the "opposition against peace," respect for the Doha agreement, an agreement on a ceasefire, the transfer of power to a new government, an end to forming militias, the prevention of looting of national treasures and the inclusion of the Hizb-e-Islami group within the government.

Addressing his supporters, Hekmatyar warned that the protests would be extended to other provinces if his demands were not met.

“In that case, our demand will be something else: All our demands will change to one demand, and that will be: step down, step down,” Hekmatyar said, presumably directing this comment to President Ashraf Ghani.
