Afghan leader: "Support ISIS against the Taliban."

The war the just keeps giving

(Khaama Press)  -  Hezb-e-Islami party led by Gulbuddin Hekmatyar announced support to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terrorist group affiliates in fight against the Taliban militants.
A statement was released by Hezb-e-Islami and urged the group’s followers to support the ISIS affiliates in the event tensions further escalated between the Taliban militants and affiliates of the ISIS group who were former members of the Taliban group.
The statement also added that the Hezb-e-Islami has an intense enmity with the Taliban group and communists along with Shura-e-Nizar.
No further elaboration was given regarding the communists, however Hezb-e-Islami’s remarks regarding Shura-e-Nizar were apparently a gesture towards the leaders of Jamiat Islami party.
Hezb-e-Islami is leading an anti-government militant group in Afghanistan and has been blacklisted by US Department of State.
The statement by Hezb-e-Islami comes as the Taliban group sent a letter to ISIS leader last month urging the rival jihadist group to stop recruiting in Afghanistan.
Taliban insisted that there is room for only “one flag, one leadership” in their fight to re-establish strict Islamist rule.

The letter was sent following heavy clashes between the Taliban militants and ISIS affiliates in eastern parts of the country, specifically in Nangarhar province.
Nangahar officials said last month that around 100 local families had been displaced by the fighting, while on July 6, local media reported that at least 49 IS militants died in separate government drone strikes in the province.
Fearing that IS is gaining traction in Afghanistan, the Taliban published a rare open letter in June in which the group's deputy leader, Mullah Akhtar Mohammad Mansoor, warned IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi to stay out of Afghanistan. The letter called on Baghdadi to stop recruiting Taliban members and to refrain from starting an insurgency in Afghanistan.
"The Islamic Emirate (Taliban) does not consider the multiplicity of jihadi ranks beneficial either for jihad or for Muslims," Mansoor reportedly wrote.
In his July 5 statement, which was posted on the website of Hezb-e Islami's official newspaper, Shahadat, Hekmatyar warned that if the Taliban "fight with those who have quit the Taliban and declared allegiance to the Islamic State, help these militants, because the Taliban are sworn enemies of Hezb-e Islami."
Hezb-e Islami, one of the strongest anti-Soviet mujahedin factions in the 1980s, has claimed several high-profile attacks in the Afghan capital and elsewhere, including a May 2013 suicide bombing in Kabul that killed at least 15 people.
