Red Cross Flees Afghanistan in Face of Rampant Terror Attacks

12

So much for helping the victims of terror. The International Committee of the Red Cross, or ICRC, has been forced to draw down its numbers in Afghanistan after a barrage of terror attacks from ISIS and Taliban members have made conditions too dangerous for workers.

“We have no choice but to drastically reduce our presence and activities in Afghanistan,” said Monica Zanarelli, the ICRC chief in Afghanistan.

Tragic.

Terror attacks have sent the Red Cross scurrying from Afghanistan.

Few other places in the world could use the likes of the Red Cross. Once again, it’s the Muslim world — the religion of peace — to blame for the violent conditions.

Breitbart has more:

The decision by the charity group, which has been operating in Afghanistan for decades, is a testament to the growing dangers for aid workers in the country.

“This is a difficult moment for the ICRC and the staff. After 30 years of continuous presence in the country, we are reducing our presence and operations. But let’s be very clear, we are not leaving Afghanistan. Limiting our staff’s exposure to risks is our focus, all the while assisting the people affected by the conflict the best way we can,” declared the ICRC chief in a statement.

With an estimated 1,800 ICRC staffers in Afghanistan, including 120 international aid workers, the Red Cross’ operations in the country are its fourth largest worldwide.

ICRC revealed that it would close its offices in Faryab and Taliban hotbed Kunduz, both provinces in northern Afghanistan.

Meanwhile, it will “seriously” scale back its operations in Mazar-i-Sharif, the capital of northern Afghanistan’s Balkh province.

“We understand the consequences to stop our activities in the north, but we have no choice,” proclaimed Zanarelli.

“Exposure to risk has become our greater challenge in Afghanistan, and we know that zero risk doesn’t exist, and we are not aiming at that, but our security has to be guaranteed by every party,” she added in a statement.

In recent years, ICRC staff members in Afghanistan have been victims of terrorism despite being in the country to help injured and disabled people from all sides, assisting hospitals, making prison visits, as well as ensuring prisoners maintain contact with their families.

ICRC revealed in the statement:

In December 2016, an ICRC staff member was abducted in Kunduz province, and released four weeks later. This incident was followed by the brutal killing of six staff and the abduction of two others in Jawzjan province. After a seven-month-long ordeal, the two abducted staff were released on 5 September. Only six days after that, a physiotherapist was shot and killed by a long-term patient inside the rehabilitation centre in Mazar-i-Sharif.

The revelation that the Red Cross is downsizing its activities came as reports resurfaced about a possible truce between the Taliban and its alleged rival ISIS in Afghanistan.

According to Agence France-Presse (AFP) agency, both groups may be behind the attacks on the Red Cross in northern Afghanistan.

“The [ICRC] group has suffered a series of deadly attacks in northern Afghanistan, where Taliban and Islamic State group militants have intensified their assaults on police and troops,” reports AFP.

Citing unnamed sources, news outlets from the Afghanistan region claim Taliban chief Hebatullah Akhundzada has ordered his jihadists not to fight against its alleged rival the Islamic State.

Khaama Press (KP) points out that Akhundzada’s order “comes as bloody clashes continue in some parts of the country between the Taliban group and ISIS militants.”

Once again, the Taliban has denied any affiliation with ISIS, also considered an enemy by the Taliban’s ally al-Qaeda. ISIS broke away from ISIS in 2014.

Echoing the U.S. military, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL) reported in August that ISIS and the Taliban worked together “in a rare joint operation” this year in northern Afghanistan’s Sar-e Pul Province.

Gen. John Nicholson, the top commander of U.S. and NATO troops in Afghanistan, has conceded that the two groups reached a ceasefire in eastern Nangarhar province last year, stressing that the agreement did not extend to the rest of the country.

At the time, the U.S. military considered Nangarhar to be ISIS’ only stronghold in the Afghanistan region.

However, the ISIS branch in Afghanistan has already expanded its jihadi operations from one to seven provinces, the United Nations recently reported.

The Taliban and its allies, namely the Haqqani Network, remain the most prominent jihadi threat in Afghanistan.

Taliban jihadists control or contest 45 percent of Afghanistan, revealed the Long War Journal (LWJ), a component of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies (FDD) think-tank.

Breitbart News determined that the Taliban’s reach in Afghanistan is higher now than during any other time since the U.S. military deposed the group’s regime in late 2001.

Although the Taliban and ISIS have engaged in turf battles in Afghanistan since the latter group established a presence in the country in early 2015, some Afghan officials have repeatedly claimed that the two organizations have cooperated.

    There is no point in any western civilized organization being involved in any islamic country. The hatred for anything other than islam is increasing daily, with the calls from the qur’an to murder those who are not muslim being heard and acted on continually. Pull out, let islam suave it’s own problems however it sees fit. But, mine the borders of all muslim countries so they stay in their own homes, not increasing the problems they can’t solve internally, by invading others, turning them into the islamic hell that exists wherever muslims are.

      Pull out, and nuke ’em from orbit, ’cause it’s the only way to be sure.

    What troubles me about all of the commentary in the above article is that what is MISSING from the thinking that should be prominently on display and discussed with open vigor. The belief system that is Islam is first and foremost a political ideology, not a religion. It is an ideology that has as its underlying concepts: Supremacy/ Domination/ Subjugation/ and a system of rules, otherwise called Sharia, all of which concepts have the effect of causing others to be the targets of murder and mayhem. The politically correct claim that anyone who professes fear of Islam is not only NOT entitled to speak and/or register that fear, with those fools calling anyone who does “Islamophobia’s,” has left us with a failure to recognize the legitimacy of that fear as being very rational, and it is resulting in a world of people who are allowing themselves to be eaten alive by this radical and dangerous philosophy. While I deplore the calls for violent conduct, I have come to believe that we must DEFEND ourselves from these believers of this philosophy as we have done in the past against those societies that accept and practice barbaric notions as does Islam. While I must recognize that not all Muslims are radical, as many adopt a secular non-violent approach to the teachings of their belief system, I have come to realize that those countries that foster this heinous philosophy and provide protection to those who conduct themselves in the heinous fashion that we see occurring regularly on this planet, and the groups that actively commit the mayhem, must be stopped and defeated. We must have a world-wide effort to end this scourge. That is what right thinking and reasonable and responsible leaders must be doing now, before we are all overrun.

      @Dennis – agreed. But how do you propose they be “stopped and defeated.” As a Christian, I struggle with this but readily admit that if it takes a war to stop them, then so be it.

    You can’t help most TURD world countries. You been doing this for decades and they still don’t change. So what do you do in your madness.

    You import them here by the MILLIONS!! Maybe you wanted to save on fuel cost, I don’t know.

    Don’t forget, the IRC and the UK both abandoned their outposts in Benghazi shortly before our diplomatic station was attacked, resulting in the deaths of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others. Forewarned is forearmed.

  • DaveM12

    The Red Cross and all the affiliated groups like Doctors without Borders must leave the islamic world. Muslims are simply not worth any aid person dying over. Every muslim that dies is one less to worry about.

    If this seems harsh look around you, nothing you see comes from their world and when our world collapses the massive aid going to the muslim world ends as well as medical aid and progress in food development, science and everything else.
