Gulnuddin Hekmatyar to protect ISIL in Afghanistan

Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, leader of Islamic party (Hizb-e-Islami) protects the activities of ISIL in Afghanistan.

In an announcement recently published from this anti-government group, Gulbuddin Hekmatyar urges his fans and followers to support and protect those Taliban joined ISIL when conflicts.

This is the first time a group is overtly supporting ISIL’s activities in Afghanistan and this could lead to more serious concerns for Afghan officials.

It has been reportedly confirmed some militants of Taliban are joining to ISIL, and the latter has had partial activities in some provinces of Afghanistan.

It is yet not clear if the support from Hekmatyar will help ISIL increase its activities in Afghanistan, however, it will give strength to its militants.
