Grieving Afghan Mother Kills 25 Taliban Militants Who Gunned Down Her Son

“We started a kind of family war against the Taliban,” Fatima, daughter of Gul said, adding that she was personally preparing bullets for her father and mother to fight off the enemies.

Gul’s husband Abdul Satar stated they were ready to sacrifice the entire family, to not allow the Taliban to get closer to the check post.

“My young son who was a police officer was killed in front of my eyes,” Abdul Satar said. “I pulled aside his dead body and started fighting to defend my soil to prove that this is the soil of Malalay, the hero. I was committed to give up my life, but not my son’s check post.”

Sardar, the youngest member of the family, also participated in the battle by preparing bullets for his father.

“Taliban are foreigners, they are servants of Pakistan, if they attack 100 other times, I will continue to defend my country and will shed their blood to not let them dare to enter my village” the little fighter added.

“We are proud of the bravery of this family and this is a saga that will be remembered for long by police and residents of Farah province,” said General Abdul Razaq Yaqubi, the Police Chief.
