Former Afghan spy chief says he has proof Pakistan helps terrorists

Pakistan was accused of habouring and aiding Taliban militants in a social media post by the former head of Afghan intelligence late Thursday.

Rahmatullah Nabil posted six documents purportedly from Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence agency, apparently showing that the state has aided militants including the Haqqani network.

One document conveys the agency's thanks to four men in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, on the Afghan border, for their successful attack on Kabul’s international airport in 2014 and instructs agents to hand them 2.5 million rupees (24,000 dollars).

Another document orders an agency headquarters in Rawalpindi to provide transport serviecs to two Haqqani network commanders, Atta Mohammad and Hafiz Loqman, and take them to a Pakistani military base in north Waziristan in military uniforms and military vehicles.

The Afghan government has not commented on the allegations.

Kabul has long accused Pakistan of allowing insurgents to set up bases on its territory and launch cross-border raids on the Afghan government and its allies.
