Women face torture and death as Taliban draw up ‘kill list’

The Taliban have drawn up new rules meaning women will face torture and death while targets on a ‘kill list’ could be murdered on their doorsteps.

Concerning reports are surfacing from Afghanistan as the government collapsed allowing the Taliban to seize power nearly 20 years after being driven out by the West.

It is understood there are claims of summary killings by the Taliban as fighters perform door-to-door searches throughout Kabul city, the Mirror reports.

Former officials, ex police, soldiers and anyone who worked with the former Kabul government or with coalition forces are being hunted down.

Yesterday (August 15) British private security team was forced to negotiate their way through a Taliban checkpoint and was given very alarming news, according to the Mirror.

And yesterday, the Mirror can reveal, a British private security team was forced to negotiate their way through a Taliban checkpoint and was given very alarming news.

A source told the Daily Mirror: “The Taliban told them: ‘you need to leave now because a large number of foreign fighters is heading to Kabul and you don’t want to be here when they arrive.

“These fighters will not be here to be peaceful.”

The Taliban guard told them the battle-hardened foreign fighters were travelling from Wardak, 100 miles west of Kabul, and have a brutal and merciless reputation as fighters.

Taliban forces have reportedly vowed to reintroduce barbaric laws so they can resume brutalising women and gay people as they did in the 90s.

There have already been sickening reports of women being shot dead and girls as young as 12 being dragged from their homes so they can become a child bride.

Reports claims thousands gathered to witness an execution in Kandahar at a sports stadium while a woman was reportedly sentenced to be stoned to death in Samangan.

Taliban bosses have vowed to return to restart evil punishments and the group’s top spokesman said yesterday they will leave the punishments up to their “courts”.

They are claimed to have drawn up a “kill list”

Antonio Guterres, United Nations Secretary General, called on the Security Council on Monday to “use all tools at its disposal to suppress the global terrorist threat in Afghanistan” and guarantee that basic human rights will be respected.

He told the 15-member council: “We are receiving chilling reports of severe restrictions on human rights throughout the country. I am particularly concerned by accounts of mounting human rights violations against the women and girls of Afghanistan.

“We cannot and must not abandon the people of Afghanistan.”

Horrifying video have emerged that shows thousands of terrified Afghans desperately trying to flee the country by clambering on board planes out of the country.

Sayed Mustafa Kazemi, a Radio Free Europe journalist trapped in Kabul, tweeted that the Taliban are roaming the streets on the hunt for their enemies.

He wrote: “Taliban started door to door search looking for govt officials, former police & security forces members & those who worked for foreign countries NGOs or infrastructures in Afghanistan.

“At least three journalists’ houses were searched in the last hour. Kabul is now becoming deadly. This is a game changer for us all.

“Many have started counting their final hours of life in Kabul. Nobody knows what happens next.

“Pray for us.”

Other reports claim petrified people are hiding in their homes as Taliban fighters stop and search cars.

Fighters are also reportedly compiling lists of women in the government and media.

There are also claims that civilians with weapons are having them confiscated and being told they “no longer need them” while musicians are being beaten by fighters and having their instruments destroyed.

Forsaken Fighters – an Australian not-for-profit organisation that helps support those left behind – tweeted that one of the interpreters it works with was executed in Kandahar on Sunday night.

They shared an in image of the dad-of-four saying he had been “mutilated” as fighters discovered he had worked for both the US and UK around 10 years ago.

Matt Zeller, a US veteran of the Afghan war, said around 44,000 Afghans who helped Washington during the 20-year conflict need to be rescued.

Mr Zeller, co-founder of No One Left Behind, a charity that helps Afghans settle in the US, told Al Jazeera the reports outside of Kabul are “horrific”.

He said: “There are public executions in Kandahar in the stadium.

“Women have been told they cannot leave their homes in Herat and the Taliban are going door to door in Mazar-i-Sharif looking for anyone who worked with the US military.”

Australian news outlet ABC previously reported Taliban fighters had sent chilling warnings to anyone it suspected of working with the West.

In one letter they said: “We have reports that you and other interpreters are in contact with infidel friends, to get you out of Afghanistan and get you a visa.

“Therefore you will not be forgiven by the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, neither will we accept any other excuse.”

Afghan interpreters have previously said they face a death sentence as they could be hunted down and executed by the Taliban.

One translator is claimed to have been stopped by Taliban militants and beheaded back in May as the fighters said he was a “spy for the Americans”.

It was reported by France24 that in July the Taliban issued an edict demanding local leaders to present lists of girls aged over 15 and widows under 45 so they could be forced to marry fighters.

Taliban judge Gul Rahim bragged the barbaric violence would be making a return when he spoke to Bild in July.

He spoke proudly saying his favoured methods of execution are stonings or hangings.

Boris Johnson and Dominic Raab were both on holiday at the same time a few hours before the fall of Kabul, it has emerged.

By Monday evening as many as 900 British troops were protecting Kabul airport, along with 6,000 US soldiers from the 82nd Airborne.

It means the UK MoD has expanded the original rescue mission, boosting it with 300 reinforcements and sources say more are on standby in case the crisis worsens.

The PM had previously claimed on July 8: “I do not believe that the Taliban are guaranteed the kind of victory that we sometimes read about.”

Mr Johnson chaired his third COBRA meeting in four days on the crisis this lunchtime – and has asked MPs to return to Parliament on Wednesday.

UK Defence Secretary Ben Wallace has admitted “some people won’t get back” from Afghanistan as a desperate struggle to get British nationals and local allies out of the country continued.
