Taliban Ban Foreign Fighters From Joining Their Ranks

KABUL – The Taliban have ordered their fighters not to include foreign militants in their ranks, nor shelter them, and stated if fighters fail to adhere to the order they will face dismissal.
The group’s military commission said in a statement that should this happen the responsible cell will also be disbanded.
“All authorities and Mujahidin are directed that no one is allowed to arbitrarily let foreign groups into their ranks or give shelter to them.”
“If anyone commits such an act and the provincial authorities are notified, they (fighters) will be immediately dismissed,” the statement read.
“Their groups will be disbanded and referred to the military commission for further punishment,” the statement concluded.
This comes after Afghan military officials on Tuesday claimed that foreign militants are fighting alongside the Taliban in the southern Kandahar province against government forces.
A Taliban spokesperson, however, denied the report.
