New statement from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan's Zabīhullah Mujāhid: "Clarification on the Martyrdom of 7 Children"

Sadly, 7 children were martyred with two others wounded Monday morning in explosives planted by the Arbaki militias in their abandoned post in Paktika province.
Two days back, the puppet militias locally known as Arbaki vacated one of their posts in Khair Kot district of the mentioned province. The said post had been planted by Arbakis with lethal and perilous explosives to which this morning the aforementioned children fell prey.
Unaware  of their pitiable fate, the unfortunate children approached the certain post early this morning and got into it so as to retrieve some metal and other stuff left behind by Arbakis but  were blown to pieces as the explosives detonated.
As stated above, 7 innocent children of one family were martyred on the spot, where two others took fatal injuries.
In order to pin its flagrant crime on Mujahideen, the enemy, as usual, fed  some news agencies and media outlets with misinformation and gave the media false account of what had happened other than facts without clarifying the real situation.
One may take the lid off the enemy’s propaganda by simply inquiring of the locals in the vicinity about the incident who are conscious of every detail.
Similarly, the enemy attributed the stated incident to that of the roadside bombing, while the residents are well aware of facts and what happened.
We are equally grieved over the painful tragedy and share the great distress and sorrow of the family, on the other hand, strongly denounce the enemy’s cowardly act and propaganda against Jihad.
