Not even the time to drive the Americans out of Afghanistan that the Taliban have already started broadcasting propaganda video on state TV. In some videos you can see a parade of weapons, vests for suicide attacks and bombs; in others, however, there are fighters who, in a bizarre and clumsy way, demonstrate their techniques and skills. Also, as the images scroll by, a voiceover is heard presenting “the military industry of the mujahideen” to “destroy the enemy’s ordinary and armored vehicles”.
The procession, as reported by the Daily Mail, took place in Kandahar in front of the Taliban leaders, who sat watching the show in an improvised booth. The whole thing lasted about 40 minutes. The “Koranic students” also published another propaganda video in which jihadist fighters perform in martial arts and other fighting techniques.
In the movie you can see them while kicking through wooden boards, they smash ceramic objects with fists and stage intense karate fighting scenes. And that’s not all: in the videos, disseminated by Taliban leaders on social networks, other fighters are also seen practicing with firearms.
