As house-to-house sweep in the Afghan capital Kabul and neighboring provinces still going on, the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has asked people to voluntarily hand over government-related weapons and other property and get them confiscated.

A press release released by the chief spokesman of the IEA Zabiullah Mujahid reads that, to prevent further continuation of the ongoing “clean-up” operations people would better hand over all government property.

“The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan asks all Afghans to hand over weapons, government property, and illegal items and share information about kidnappers and thieves before the searching teams reach out to their houses. We ask people to cooperate with the IEA and voluntarily hand over weapons.” Reads statement.

In the press release, the IEA acknowledges that the operations will end soon only if people get weapons and government property confiscated voluntarily.

This comes as a number of international organizations slammed the operations accusing the Taliban to be intimidating families and violating people’s privacy but the IEA has defended the search and added that the operations were fruitful and full of achievements.
