Afghan MP Belquis Roshan posted a video to her social media account on January 4, 2020. In the video Roshan said, in parliament, that as a representative of the people of Afghanistan, she feels ashamed that former President Hamid Karzai expressed sorrow for such people. She continued to say that Soleimani had committed numerous crimes in Afghanistan and was responsible for the deaths of at least 5,500 young Afghans and the disappearance of another 1,200.


Belquis Roshan: "Qasem Soleimani... As a representative of the people of Afghanistan, I feel ashamed that [Hamid] Karzai says that he is sorry for such people. It is clear to everybody that Soleimani was a man who committed numerous crimes in Afghanistan. He brought about the deaths of at least 5,500 young Afghans, in the framework of the so-called Fatemiyoun Division in Syria. 1,200 men are still missing."
