Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid recently announced that three people had been arrested on charges of being involved in recent attacks and explosions in Kabul.

He described the prisoners as “disruptors” who “disrupted the security of the city in exchange for money” on his tweet of 14th June, last night.

These men, according to Mujahid, were apprehended in Kabul’s fourth police district.

The Taliban official has used the term “disruptor” to characterize anti-Taliban figures in the past, as well as opposition forces more recently.

He claimed that the detainees had confessed to their crimes and had done so in exchange for money.

For the past two months, the Taliban and its forces have been under heavy guerrilla attacks by the National Resistance Front, and inside the cities, the Taliban’s forces have been insecure and have been attacked with magnetic mines and explosives.
