Foreign fighters support Taliban in Afghanistan

"Up to 40 foreign fighters from Arab, Chechen, Tajikistan and other central Asian states have been fighting alongside with Taliban militants in Kunduz province"

If the war logs are to be believed, Iranian involvement in Afghanistan has steadily widened from 2004 to today, amid record levels of military and civilian casualties and spreading violence.
A threat report originated by Isaf (International Security Assistance Force) headquarters in February 2005, covering Regional Command South, classified secret, says for example that Taliban leaders and former officials of the Taliban government toppled by the US in 2001 are planning a series of attacks in Helmand and Uruzgan provinces.

About 40 foreign fighters have been supporting Taliban militants in Afghanistan's northern Kunduz province, police said on Saturday. They have been fighting under Uzbek extremist commander Tahir Yaldash, provincial deputy police chief Abdul Rahman Haqtash said, while showing three foreign fighters to the media.

"They are from Tajikistan and they received one year training in Pakistan's tribal area of Miran Shah bordering Afghanistan last year," Haqtash was quoted as saying by Xinhua.

They were arrested along with their Afghan comrade Abdul Sattar Saturday morning and arms and ammunition in their possession were seized, he added.

"Up to 40 foreign fighters from Arab, Chechen, Tajikistan and other central Asian states have been fighting alongside with Taliban militants in Kunduz province," Haqtash said.
