Taliban defector exposes Iran's funding for terrorism in Afghanistan

Defector from the Taliban terrorist group have exposed the Iranian Mullah regime's funding of terrorism in Afghanistan.


They said that Iran has funded the terror group to attack major pipeline project in the country.


The defectors joined the peace process by exposing Iran's destructive plan in Herat province in western Afghanistan.

The Taliban commander, named Mullah Fayrouz, asserted that the Iranian government funded the Taliban group and ordered the attack on the Afghanistan's top-national project.

Mullah Fayrouz said the TAPI project is a national project, so they rejected Iran's orders and joined the peace process.


The commander of the Taliban, Mohammad Ayub Alizai, stressed that Iran provided financial and military equipment to the group to damage the operation of the TAPI project.


The Turkmenistan–Afghanistan–Pakistan–India Pipeline (TAPI), also known as Trans-Afghanistan Pipeline, is a natural gas pipeline being developed by the Galkynysh – TAPI Pipeline Company Limited with participation of the Asian Development Bank.


The pipeline will transport natural gas from the Galkynysh Gas Field in Turkmenistan through Afghanistan into Pakistan and then to India.


Construction on the project started in Turkmenistan on December 13th, 2015. The pipeline is expected to be operational by 2019.


This comes as Iran regime, according to documents, is a prime backer for the extremist Sunnis groups in the region such as Qaeda, Taliban and even ISIS. Both sides cooperate to hamper the Western interests in the region.
