Haqqani network leader pleads not guilty of carrying recent attacks in newly released tapes
According to Afghan state- run news agency Khaama Press, Sirajuddin Haqqani, who is the network's leader and the deputy supreme leader of the Taliban group, has rejected all allegations against both the terrorist organisations.
Haqqani has further said that both the Taliban and Haqqani network never carry out attacks in public places.
The tapes were distributed to media by Taliban group spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid, the agency reported.
However, Haqqani has said that they will continue to revolt against the government until all foreign forces are withdrawn from Afghanistan.
So far, during this ongoing Ramadan, over 200 people have died in Afghanistan, owing to a series of attacks.
Meanwhile, the Afghan government has resorted to their earlier claim and said that they have credible information and sources, all of which points towards the Haqqani network as the mastermind behind the attacks.
