    آریانانیوز: بر اساس افشاگری یک رسانه پشتو زبان، حزب اسلامی به رهبری گلبدین حکمتیار روند آموزش جنگجویان گروه تروریستی داعش در شرق کشورمان را به عهده دارد...

    منابع محلی به نن‌تکی‌آسیا گفتند که حزب اسلامی افغانستان گلبدین حکمتیار در شرق کشورمان روند آموزش جنگجویان گروه تروریستی داعش را به عهده دارد.

    بر اساس این گزارش، امان‌الله خان قوماندان حزب اسلامی در ولایت کنر مسوولیت آموزش جنگجویان گروه تروریستی در شرق کشور را به عهده دارد.

    منابع خبری تصریح کردند که امان‌الله خان قوماندان حزب اسلامی چند روز پیش به کابل آمده و با حکمتیار دیدار کرده است.

    حکمتیار در این دیدار از قوماندان حزب اسلامی خواسته تا جمعی از جنگجویان داعش را پس از آموزش، در ولسوالی شیگل ولایت کنر مستقر کند.

    ظاهرا این قوماندان حزب اسلامی با آموزش و حمایت از گروه تروریستی داعش در ولایت کنر مخالفت کرده است اما رهبر حزب اسلامی تقویت داعش برای ادامه جنگ در کشور را ضروری دانسته است.

    این در حالی است که حکمتیار رهبر حزب اسلامی پیش از این نیز از جنگجویان این حزب خواسته بود که در درگیری بین گروه تروریستی داعش و طالبان از داعش حمایت کنند.

    پیش از این نیز اعضای گروه تروریستی داعش که در کابل بازداشت شده بودند به دلیل ارتباط با حکمتیار رهبر حزب اسلامی محاکمه نشدند تا روابط اعضای داعش با حزب اسلامی افشا نشود.
