Afghanistan, Kunar Valley, 1986
For the Afghan mujahedin, the war against the Soviet occupation was a jihad, and several of the guerrilla groups were led by Islamic fundamentalists. After fleeing a counterattack by MiG fighter jets following an assault on a Soviet base, a group of fighters stopped in the forest to pray.

بالنسبة إلى المجاهدين الأفغان، كانت الحرب ضد الاحتلال السوفييتي بمثابة جهاد، وكان العديد من مجموعات حرب العصابات بقيادة الأصوليين الإسلاميين. بعد الفرار من هجوم مضاد شنّته طائرات ميغ بعد هجومٍ على قاعدة سوفييتية، توقفت مجموعة من المقاتلين في الغابة للصلاة.
