The Taliban in Afghanistan is calling for the Egyptian military to end its “inhuman and unethical action” against those who are protesting Egypt’s new government.
They are specifically calling on Egyptian General Abdel Fattah el-Sissi to “stop spilling the blood of innocent women, children, and elderly” in his bid to wipe out the encampments of pro-Morsi supporters.
This is the same Taliban that has used various terror strikes and attacks to spill the blood of untold numbers of innocent women, children, and elderly.
According to The Hill, leaders of the Taliban “are calling on the United Nations and regional Arab powers” to do what they can to effect an end to “the bloodshed of more innocent people.”
Secretary of State John Kerry and President Obama have also denounced the actions of the Egyptian military. Kerry described them as “deplorable”, and Obama has canceled the delivery of F-16 fighters to Egypt because of the military’s actions.
