IEA bans armed forces from entering amusement parks

The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan’s (IEA) Council of Ministers has issued a decree banning military personnel from entering amusement parks when in uniform, and carrying weapons.

A spokesman for the IEA, Zabihullah Mujahid, said on Twitter: “Mujahideen of the Islamic Emirate are not allowed to enter amusement parks with weapons, military uniforms and vehicles.”

“The Mujahideen are obliged to abide by all the rules and regulations of the amusement parks,” he tweeted.

In recent months, reports have emerged of IEA forces entering amusement parks and refusing to hand over their weapons.
