The Afghan government reacted to Taliban supreme leader Mullah Hebatullah Akhundzada’s Eid message, calling his statement rife with fear, terror and war.

Presidential spokesperson Sediq Sediqqi said the people of Afghanistan do not need to hear the message of Taliban.

Sediqqi further added that the message of Taliban still is a message of fear, terror and war.

Furthermore, Sediqqi said the Taliban group is the main factor behind the destruction of the country and civilian casualties.

He also added that the Afghan people want the Taliban to stop war and destruction, emphasizing that the people of Afghanistan will no more be deceived by the group.

This comes as the Taliba supreme leader Hebatullah Akhundzada issued a message ahead of Eid Al-Adha, calling on Taliban militants to refrain from harming the civilians during the Eid days.

The latest Eid message by Taliban supreme leader was issued amid a sharp rise in violence across the country, mainly due to the Taliban-led insurgency.

The Taliban group on Wednesday claimed the deadly bombing in Kabul city which killed at least 14 people and wounded 145 others, mostly civilians.
