AT-KABUL: After threatening the two well-known local news channels, the Taliban insurgents have included almost 99 percent of the Afghan media outlets in their hit-list.
The militant group’s so-called military commission has recently included all those print and electronic media organizations that have highlighted and condemned brutality of the Taliban through editorials, articles, news, feature and analytical reports.
The group in a report on its website (www.shahamat-english.com) said: “There are very few in this media field who have actually fulfilled their true ethical duty, why? because most have only worked for the goals of the invaders.”
The group warned to deal with the targeted media outlets in the same way as they are doing with foreign troops and Afghan forces.
