The political chief of Palestinian resistance group Hamas, Ismail Haniyeh, has congratulated the Taliban on the end of the US “occupation” of Afghanistan.

This came in a phone call between Haniyeh and Taliban leader Abdul-Ghani Baradar on Monday.

Haniyeh said the end of the US occupation of Afghanistan “is a prelude to the demise of all occupation forces, foremost of which is the Israeli occupation of Palestine”, according to Hamas’ website.

The Taliban have seized power in Afghanistan two weeks before the U.S. is set to complete its troop withdrawal after a costly two-decade war.
