The Taliban threatened the US with repercussions if it did not cease flying drones over Afghan airspace on Wednesday.
“With the operation of these drones in Afghanistan, the US has broken all international rights and regulations, as well as its obligations made to the Taliban in Doha, Qatar,” the Taliban claimed in a statement on Twitter.
“We urge all countries, including the United States, to treat Afghanistan in accordance with international human rights, laws, and commitments… to avoid any negative consequences.”
Officials from the United States could not be reached for comment right away.
After most US and other Western soldiers departed Afghanistan last month, the Taliban Islamist group came back into power, bringing an end to a military and diplomatic mission that began soon after the September 11, 2001 attacks on the US.
Although Daesh has claimed responsibility for bomb assaults in the eastern city of Jalalabad, Taliban leaders deny Daesh and Al-Qaeda militants are operating in the nation.
The world community is pressuring the Taliban to cut connections with Al-Qaeda, the terrorist organization responsible for the 9/11 attacks in New York and Washington.
