Extensive Network of Jihadist Training Camps in Afghanistan Still Operational

Stills from video showing Taliban ‘Omar ibn Khattab’ training camp in Kunduz – long operational – not touched – why?

Claimed as cleared by Afghan National Army & drone strikes in 2014 and 2015. Camps in Jawzjan, Zurmat, Paktia & Ayyubi still also host jihadists in Afghanistan.

Harakat Ul Mujahideen, Imam Bukhari Jamaat, Uzbek jihadist groups operating in Syria & Afghanistan and moving into Iraq and also the Islamic Jihad Union train at these and other Afghan camps.

Haqqani Network, a powerful subgroup of the Taliban, recently released a video from its Salahadin Ayyubi camp someplace in eastern Afghanistan.

The Turkistan Islamic Party, an Uighur jihadist group within al Qaeda’s international network, showcased a training camp reportedly in Afghanistan last year also.

At the end of the video Mullah Abdul Salam the Taliban’s Shadow Governor for Kundûz swears allegiance to new the new Taliban Emir Mullah Haibatullah Akhundzada.
