Taliban 'Rape' Girls At Hostel After Kunduz Attack

Military officials in northern Kunduz province accused Taliban militants of having raped girls at a hostel after attacking the Kunduz city facility.

The Taliban has rejected these rape claims.

Officials however claim that the insurgents, after entering other areas of the city, carried out the same atrocity against female residents and killed some of their victims.

TOLOnews reporter, Wali Arian who has visited the hostel, says insurgents also destroyed the hostel building.

He says that after entering the hostel, the Taliban reportedly raped a number of girls who were there at the time.

Sayed Iqbal Sadat, an army officer, said: "Some girls were remaining here and the residents confirmed that such a thing had happened."

Wali Arian meanwhile says that nothing at the hostel has been left untouched by the Taliban – not even the girls' religious books.

Some officials say that a number of girls were also killed by insurgents at the hostel.

"We received information from our intelligence sources that girls were killed but we have not seen anybody to confirm it," another army officer Mohammad Safdar Andarabi said.

According to the Dean of Kunduz University Abdul Qudus Zarifi: "Because it was Eid all our students were away for Eid and there were no students in the hostel when fighting began in Kunduz. There were no students in the female hostel in Kunduz. This rumor being spread, I reject it. It is the wrong news. All our students were at their homes. There were no girls at the female hostel of Kunduz university."
Army officials believe that a modus operandi of the Taliban is to destroy everything in their wake.

Army commander, Ahmad Habibi, said: "Unfortunately, what the Taliban are doing now are all against the Islamic teachings."

Kunduz city was captured by the Taliban 10 days ago but was later retaken by Afghan security forces after they started a large scale clearance operation.
