Taliban Plans To Gift Land To Relatives Of Suicide Bombers That Have Attacked U.S. Soldiers

A group who Old Uncle Joe has heralded as being very “businesslike and professional,” the Taliban have reportedly been making promises to give plots of land to the living relatives of the suicide bombers who carried out attacks against U.S. soldiers.

“Addressing the gathering Monday evening, [Sirajuddin Haqqani] praised the sacrifices of ‘martyrs and fedayeen,’ referring to fighters killed in suicide attacks,” stated The Associated Press. “Haqqani called them ‘heroes of Islam and the country,’ according to [Interior Ministry spokesman Saeed Khosty]. At the end of the meeting, he distributed 10,000 afghanis ($112) per family and promised each a plot of land.”

Reportedly, the Biden admin has agreed, this past week, to give humanitarian aid to Afghanistan, and in turn the Taliban, as the conditions within the country continue to nosedive in the wake of the new Taliban rule.

“The U.S. has agreed to provide humanitarian aid to a desperately poor Afghanistan on the brink of an economic disaster, while refusing to give political recognition to the country’s new Taliban rulers,” stated a separate AP report from the area. “The statement came at the end of the first direct talks between the former foes since the chaotic withdrawal of U.S. troops at the end of August.”

Ned Price, the spokesman for the State Department, stated, in a release, that the U.S. delegation “focused on security and terrorism concerns and safe passage for U.S. citizens, other foreign nationals and our Afghan partners, as well as on human rights, including the meaningful participation of women and girls in all aspects of Afghan society.”

“The two sides also discussed the United States’ provision of robust humanitarian assistance, directly to the Afghan people,” continued the release. “The discussions were candid and professional with the U.S. delegation reiterating that the Taliban will be judged on its actions, not only its words.”

This news crops up after the Taliban, this past week, stated that it would refuse to work with the U.S. in any attempts to try and combat ISIS-K, which was the responsible party for the murdering of 13 U.S. soldiers as part of a suicide bombing back in August.

As reported by the AP:

Taliban political spokesman Suhail Shaheen told The Associated Press there would be no cooperation with Washington on containing the increasingly active Islamic State group in Afghanistan. IS has taken responsibility for a number of recent attacks, including a suicide bombing Friday that killed 46 minority Shiite Muslims and wounded dozens as they prayed in a mosque in the northern city of Kunduz.

“We are able to tackle Daesh independently,” Shaheen said, when asked whether the Taliban would work with the U.S. to contain the Islamic State affiliate. He used an Arabic acronym for IS.
