Hekmatyar's Fighters Refuse To Lay Down Arms In Afghanistan

Hekmatyar's Fighters Refuse To Lay Down Arms In Afghanistan

The decision prompted a rebuke from President Ashraf Ghani's office, with a spokesman urging Hezb-e Islami to adhere to the agreement, under which the militant group pledged to lay down its arms and end its insurgency.
Under the deal, Hezb-e Islami fighters interested in joining government forces could be integrated into the Afghan security forces.
Hezb-e Islami's refusal to lay down their arms will raise concerns over the deal with Hekmatyar, one of the country's most notorious warlords, who returned to Kabul last week following more than two decades in self-imposed exile.
