No Afghan Should Fight in  Other Nations’ Wars: Govt

“Afghanistan’s sons should not be killed for the goals of others in other countries,” says Presidency.
KABUL - Following the news that 2,000 Afghans have been killed in the Syrian war while fighting Daesh, the presidential palace said Afghans should not be killed in any other countries at war.
President’s deputy spokesman Shah Hussain Murtazavi said the Afghan government is against its citizens’ involvement in proxy wars in other countries.
The Presidential palace’s remarks were expressed after Zuhair Mujahid, a senior member of the Fatemiyoun division said an interview with IRIB TV5 that in the last two years 2,000 Afghans fighters died and nearly 8,000 others were wounded in the war against Daesh in Syria.
“Afghanistan’s sons should not be killed for the goals of others in other countries,” said Murtazavi. 
The Interior Ministry has asked those youths who participate in Syria’s war to rather fight Daesh in Afghanistan under the structure of the security forces if they really have the motivation to do so.
“If they have a strong will to fight Daesh, they can join with the security forces,” interior ministry deputy spokesman Nusrat Rahimi said. 
“Anyone participating in armed conflicts of other countries will be jailed for five up to seven years,” Gul Ahmad Madadzai, deputy head of Afghanistan’s Lawyer Union said. (Tolonews)
