New statement from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan's Zabīhullah Mujāhid: "Reaction Regarding Shooting of Oppressed Guantánamo Prisoners"

The Islamic Emirate channeled the voice of the oppressed prisoners in Guantanamo to the world and the media two months earlier who had taken up a hunger strike to protest the desecration of the Holy Quran by the American barbaric guards. It is now understood that the American guards have turned the barrels of the guns on the prisoners to forcefully break their hunger strikes and despite the years of torture, they have now exercised shootings. The American cowardly troops, who have lost all will to fight Mujahideen head on in the battlefields, now want to avenge their losses and defeat by picking on defenseless tied up prisoners to show their bravery!!!? We once again condemn this American savagery with the strongest of words. This barbaric act of American troops clearly demonstrates their ongoing criminal behavior which they launched simultaneously alongside their eleven year old invasion. We once again call on all human right organizations, free nations and civil societies to condemn such cowardly actions of America and take a firm stance against it based upon evident humane principals. The Mujahideen of Islamic Emirate also vow to avenge these wronged prisoners by targeting the American invaders in Afghanistan with all might at their disposal, Allah willing.
