The Hindustan Times reported on Dec. 25 that 10 Chinese spies who were part of a terrorist cell were arrested in Kabul, Afghanistan. The CCP spies were aimed at carrying out attacks on behalf of a former Islamic terrorist group that sought independence for the Xinjiang region so that Beijing could continue to justify its repression of the Uighurs.

The National Security Directorate (NSD) of Afghanistan arrested an individual named Li Yangyang at his home in Kabul, who allegedly is the leader of the Chinese spies operating in the country.

The DNS seized weapons, ammunition and ketamine powder from his residence when the first round of raids took place on Dec. 10.

According to information provided by the officers who interrogated Li, he had been gathering information on Al-Qaeda, the Taliban and Uighurs in Kunar and Badakhshan provinces. 

Sha Hung, a Chinese woman who owns a restaurant on the Kabul Shipur, was the second person to be arrested. She was in possession of explosive material and other items that left her compromised.

Investigators said that both Li and Sha were in contact with the Haqqani Network, a terrorist and criminal group allied with the Taliban, allegedly to receive training and information to carry out terrorist attacks.

Afghan intelligence revealed that Chinese spies were setting up a fake module of the East Turkestan Islamic Movement (ETIM) to carry out the attacks under its name.

The aim of the ETIM’s terrorist attacks was to establish the region of Xinjiang as “East Turkistan” and that is why the CCP has been using the excuse of “terrorism” for its genocidal campaign against the Uighurs in Xinjiang.

However, their leader was killed in 2003 by Pakistani security forces and the organization subsequently disappeared. That is why the U.S. State Department removed ETIM from the list of terrorist organizations and eliminated the Chinese regime’s excuse for continuing to kill Uighurs.

According to the Hindustan Times, Beijing sent officials to Afghanistan to ask that the case be dismissed and not given more prominence.

With President Trump leading the way, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has felt the pressure of the international community over the past four years more than ever before.

On Dec. 17, while European leaders were negotiating a new trade agreement with the CCP, the European Parliament also urged the CCP to end its ethnic genocide in Xinjiang Province through a resolution.

The news from Afghanistan shows the world, once again, that the Chinese Communist Party will stop at nothing to achieve its goals, even when these are to exterminate a group of innocent people.
