In Kyrgyzstan, the adjudication concerning the people involved in an act of terrorism in Embassy of China in Bishkek was pronounced. It is known that on August 30, 2016 the suicide bomber rammed the gates of Chinese Embassy in Kyrgyzstan by car and detonated a bomb together with the car in the territory of diplomatic mission. As a result of explosion, the terrorist died, three employees of embassy were wounded and serious damage was caused to the building of the consulate.
On June 27, 2017 the Pervomaisky district judge of Bishkek, Adylbek Subankulov, sentenced three participants of the terrorist attack on the Embassy of China, Hasamidin Ismailova, Hikmatillo Abdulazhanov and Kunazim Mansirova, with 10 to 18 years of imprisonment along with confiscation of property. They have been found guilty of terrorist attack preparation by the judge. All three pleaded not guilty to charges of helping organize and finance the attack. Their lawyer, Kurmanbek Tuybaev, said that he will appeal the verdicts.
According to information of the intelligence agencies of Kyrgyzstan, leaders of Sunni extremist group Jabhat al-Nusra had given the command to the leader of a local cell in Central Asia Jama’at al-Tawhid wal-Jihad of Abu Saloh to organize the explosion of the diplomatic mission of China in Bishkek. The act of terrorism was carried out by an ethnic Uyghur, a member of the Turkestan Islamic Party (TIP) organization who had returned from Syria after combat training (the name was not disclosed). He had passed through the border of Kyrgyzstan using a counterfeit passport as a citizen of Tajikistan, Zoir Khalilov, with a 1983 birthdate. The Uyghur suicide bomber was not alone. He was helped in the production of the self-made explosive device (SMED), in purchasing a “Mitsubishi” car and in movement around the city by seven people of the TIP and the Jama’at al-Tawhid wal-Jihad groups. Four of them managed to disappear abroad. They are now in the international wanted list. Therefore, the adjudication was pronounced against three participants of the act of terrorism.
It should be noted that the Uyghur fighters of TIP and the Uzbek jihadists of Jama’at al-Tawhid wal-Jihad are affiliated with the al Qaeda terrorist group and conduct fighting in Syria under a wing of Jabhat al-Nusra group. When open opposition between al Qaeda and the Islamic State for leadership in the world jihadist movement began, the head of Jabhat al-Nusra, Abu Mohammad al-Julani, supported Ayman al Zawahiri and swore fidelity to him. On May 23, 2013 Ayman al Zawahiri wrote the open letter in which he condemned al-Baghdadi’s actions and was proclaimed to be the lawful representative of al Qaeda in Syria for Jabhat al-Nusra. In reply, the leader Al-Baghdadi proclaimed creation of “Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant” (ISIS) and declared his opponents as apostates and kafirs. After this conflict between Jabhat al-Nusra and ISIS not only an ideological fight but also bloody military collisions began. In this conflict TIP has resolutely supported al Qaeda and has continued fighting under the direction of Jabhat al-Nusra.
As a scientific researcher, I was interested in the fact that the terrorist attack in the Chinese Embassy in Kyrgyzstan had been organized after audio addresses of the emir of TIP, Abdul Haq al Turkistani, and the leader of al Qaeda, Ayman al Zawahiri. In particular, in June 2016 the leader of TIP, Abdul Haq al Turkistani, publicly supported an Ayman al Zawahiri. He denounced the Islamic State’s so-called caliphate as “illegitimate.” He also called the Uyghur Islamists to continue jihad to the bitter end. According to the reporter Arabic Al Aan TV Jenan Moussa, around 10,000 to 20,000 Uyghur jihadists and their family members from China moved to Syria and joined Jabhat al-Nusra.
The statement of the leader of al Qaeda Ayman al Zawahiri was been published exactly a month after the address of the emir of TIP on July 2, 2016. Zawahiri says the Muslims of East Turkistan revolted against this “torrent of Chinese atheism,” leading to more than “40 uprisings.” Eventually this revolt was “transformed” into a “jihadist movement” against the “Chinese invaders.” At the end of the speech al Zawahiri called the Uyghur Islamists to take this sacred fight against everything incorrect all around the world. Exactly two months after the appeal of Ayman al Zawahiri, Uyghur militants carried out a terrorist attack in Bishkek, attacking the diplomatic mission of China.
It is possible to draw the conclusion that the addresses of the emir of TIP Abdul Haq al Turkistani and the leader of al Qaeda, Ayman al Zawahiri, have inspired the Uyghur jihadists to conduct the terrorist attacks directed against government agencies of “atheistic” China. As has been shown in the analysis, the terrorist attack against the Chinese Embassy was aimed achieving the maximum political effect, but was not aimed at creating the maximum number of victims. The terrorist attack allowed the TIP to remind the world once again, that is a serious player in the world jihadist movement. Such tactics completely correspond to the military and ideological strategy of al Qaeda.
Today, when al Qaeda and ISIS lose their positions in the Middle East, it is necessary for the countries of Central Asia, China, Europe and the USA to be very careful. As these two main extremist groups suffer losses on the battlefield and losses of occupied territory, they may try to replace the defeats with acts of terrorism deep in the heart of the enemy.
Ethnic War a Newfangled Pakistani Forward-policy for Afghanistan
According to the intelligence information, Pakistan’s ISI is trying to start ethnic and maneuvering war again in Afghanistan, of which distinct objective is to refurbish the age-old enmity between the Achakzai and Noorzai tribes in the southwest zone. Besides, they want to start an ethnic war among Pashtuns and non-Pashtuns across Afghanistan, and between the northern and southern directions, thus, the prominent leaders of the Taliban, who are led by the ISI, have been entrusted with the task. As in the east and north of Afghanistan, Pashtun Taliban militants are oppressing other Non-Pashtuns, raiding their homes; however, no high-ranking Pashtun Taliban officials are preventing them because the ISI network leads this strategy. In order to revamp a civil war in Afghanistan, score of influential figures have been summoned by the Pakistani military establishment.
The latest examples are as follows: Two days ago, the Pashtun Taliban killed the former police chief and an influential tribal leader in Mandol district of Nuristan province, which caused many emotions against Pashtuns especially about southwest zone of Afghanistan. Meanwhile, in order to afresh the years of hostility between the Noorzai and Achakzi tribes in the southwestern region of Afghanistan, the ISI network raised the issue of a mass grave by several leading Taliban militants, especially by the current governor of Kandahar province and Noorzai tribe leading leader, Haji Mohammad Yousef Wafa.
At a time when the former leader of the Noorzai tribe, the leading smuggler of drugs and heavy weapons in Central and South Asia, and the financial supporter of the first Taliban regime, Haji Bashar Noorzai was released from the US prison in Guantánamo. The Noorzai tribe once again became twice as strong and dominant in Afghanistan, especially in the southwest zone. Resulting threats towards the Achakzai people, on the other hand, ISI has started rapid efforts to recommence the years of enmity between these two tribes.
Recently, Pakistan’s intelligence network ISI, with the help of some leading social media and high-ranking Taliban officials, has kept the issue of finding a mass grave in Kandahar province in the southwestern zone of Afghanistan broiling, namely by inducing the blame-game. Meanwhile, local tribal leaders and residents of Spin Boldak district claim that such a grave is the grave of those who were taken out of their homes by the Taliban after August 15. Since, they were connected to Achakzai tribe and on the other hand, they served in the security departments of the overthrown Islamic Republic of Afghanistan that is why the Taliban night raided their houses, and massively killed them.
Moreover, mass murdering Hazaras at their educational institutions via suicide bombing and meantime blowing up the worship places of Sufi-Muslims, who preach the non-violent form of Islam, while calling for De-weaponization and De-politicization of Islam.
Consequently, by applying such a forward-policy, Pakistan will achieve its fancied strategic-depth in Afghanistan, while subjugating the Afghan Nation.
Pakistani Intelligence Agencies ignite Tribal Conflicts in Pak-Afghan Region
According to the intelligence information, Pakistani intelligence community supported by some international rings want to once again spread dispute and disharmony among the tribes in Afghanistan and Pakistan; subsequently the centuries-old evils and wars between the tribes will once more take a new color and become fresh. Recently, rumors of the discovery of a mass grave in Kandahar province in the southwestern zone of Afghanistan are spreading; the blame for this mass murder falls on the former police chief of Kandahar province and the former leader of the Achagzai tribe, General Abdul Razaq Achagzai. In order to afresh raising the reaction of the Norzi tribe against the Ackzai and anew the evil and war between these two tribes. Even though the current governing body of Afghanistan is completely under the control of the Noorzi tribe, because most of the high-ranking leaders of the Taliban, including the leader of the Taliban, Sheikh Haibatullah, are related to the Noorzi tribe, so there is a greater threat posed to the Achakzi tribe.
Even now, in spite of such menaces, more than 6000 Achakzi families live in Kandahar province, whose members served in the security departments under the command of General Abdul Razaq Achakzi, a staunch opponent of the Taliban. Currently, in such a tense situation that the Taliban administration has control over Afghanistan and the head of this administration is connected to the Nurzi tribe, the harsh criticism of General Abdul Razaq Achakzai’s mass killings is logical, which can cause international and internal outcries. As a result, the major victims will be the youths and leading tribal leaders of the Achakzai tribe.
By the advent of Taliban on August 15, 2021, in the first four months, more than 600 youths and tribal leaders from the Achakzi tribe were killed in the southwest zone of Afghanistan, while applying night operations or raids by the Taliban. The most famous case happened to the family of Haji Fida Mohammad Achakzai in Spin Boldak district. Haji Fida Muhammad Achakzai, known as Haji Fida Aka, is a leading leader of the Achakza tribe of Spin Boldak district and had close relations with the family of General Abdul Razaq Achakzai.
When Kandahar province fell to the Taliban before August 15, the two young sons of him were killed by the Taliban on the first night, unfortunately none of the Taliban officials took any action to prevent the tragedy. Nevertheless, this time, there is a plan going on at the international level to renew the age-old differences between the Achakzai and Norzai tribes, which the international media warmly supports. If this time the internal differences and conflicts between the Achakzai and Norzai tribes in Afghanistan get sturdier, then it will have damaging effects not only in Afghanistan, but also, serious negative measures will be taken against the Norzai under the leadership of Mahmoud Khan Achakzai, the head of the Achakzai tribe, in the Pakhtunkhwa provinces of Pakistan.
In the meantime, the decision of the Pakistani government to hand over the Pashtun areas in Pakhtunkhwa provinces to the Taliban was approved and supported by the Nurzi tribe, conversely, this action of the Pakistani government was strongly condemned by Mahmoud Khan Achakzai and PTM leader Manzoor Pashtun.
Afghan Zarqawi is shot dead in Panjsher valley of Afghanistan
According to intelligence information, the leading Taliban commander Maulvi Habibullah Sheeran, who was known as Zarqawi, a resident of Zhrhai District, Kandahar Province, in the southwestern zone of the Taliban was killed in Panjsher battle.
Meantime, the intelligence report indicates, Mullah Abdul Qayyum Zakir, the general military officer of Panjshir and Andrab and the deputy of the Ministry of National Defense, was injured in Panjshir on Friday, September 16 at 3:25 p.m.

He is one of the Taliban military commanders who, during the first mobilization of the Taliban, formed the Taliban group with the support of Mullah Muhammad Omar Mujahid, the founder of the Taliban, and attracted hundreds of young men from Helmand province to the Taliban group.
When the Taliban came to power for the second time in Afghanistan, due to internal differences among the Taliban, Mullah Abdul Qayyum Zakir left the Taliban for a short time and went to his native Kajki district of Helmand province. However, due to the many efforts of the Taliban, especially Mullah Abdul Qayyum Zakir’s assistant and the current head of security of presidential palace Mullah Mutaullah Mubarak, He joined the Taliban again and was appointed as the Deputy Minister of Defense.
Taliban leaders made more efforts to reunite Mullah Abdul Qayyum Zakir with the Taliban, because he was an influential military leader, and on the other hand, Taliban leaders were receiving reports that Mullah Qayyum Zakir wants to join ISIS against Taliban. Nevertheless, when he joined with the Taliban leaders for the second time, he was assigned the position of Deputy Minister of Defense, So, for a period, he cooperated with the Minister of Defense Maulvi Yaqoub as a military advisor in the Ministry of Defense.
When the rumors of the fall of the northern part of Afghanistan were spread and the fighting between the NRF or the National Resistance Front and the Taliban in Panjshir and Andrab intensified, Mullah Abdul Qayyum Zakir, based on the special permission of Sheikh Haibatullah, Appointed General Military Officer of Northern Afghanistan. In addition, from September 9, under his leadership, a special military operation named Al-Fath began in Panjshir and Andarabs to clear and liberate northern Afghanistan from the fighters of the National Resistance Front.
As a result of the operation, from September 9th to September 16th, dozens of NRF fighters were also killed but the casualties of Taliban fighters are methodically shown below, although scores of Taliban fighters were destroyed.

Mullah Qayyum Zakir was transferred to the 400-bed hospital in Kabul at 10 o’clock in the evening on September 16, and former Taliban doctor Atiqullah was invited to Kabul from Al-Khair Hospital of Balochistan province of Pakistan for treatment.
There is a bloody war going on in the north of Afghanistan and around 300 al-Fatih forces are going to Panjshir from Kabul tonight and may reach tomorrow. Meanwhile, in Vienna, the plan for the formation of a new military and political movement was announced in a three-day meeting of the anti-Taliban political officials of the former government of Afghanistan. Moreover, based on that military plan, after dividing Afghanistan into five major parts, the political and military leaders of each zone will start preparing their organizations against the Taliban, and they will use such political and military tactics as the Taliban used against the government of the Republic of Afghanistan during the last 20 years of resistance.
