“ ပန်းဆက်ရွာမှာပဲ တိုက်ပွဲဖြစ်တာ။ The battle was only at Pansett village အခုဖမ်းခံရတဲ့ တောင်ဖြူရွာမှာ ဘာတိုက်ပွဲမှမဖြစ်လို့ ကာကွယ်ရေး တပ်ဖွဲ့ဝင်တွေ သေစရာမရှိဘူး။ As there was no battle at all at Taung Hpyu (White Hill village) there was no reason for anyone to die there သေတယ်ဆိုတာက သူတို့ နှိပ်စက်လို့ သေရတာ။ When they said there were deaths ညှိနှိုင်းမယ်ဆိုလို့ လိုက်သွားကြတာ။ these were due to their torture. လက်နက်တောင် ယူမသွားဘူး။ (Our comrades) did not even take their weapons လက်နက်တွေနဲ့ မိတယ်ဆိုတာကလည်း ခါတိုင်းလိုပဲ လိမ်တာပေါ့။ So saying they were caught with their weapons is just another lie as usual ဖမ်းခံလိုက်ရပြီးမှ သတ်ခံရတာ လေးယောက် ဖြစ်နေပြီ။ It was 4 who were killed after they were arrested သေဆုံးတာက သုံးယောက်တောင် မဟုတ်ဘူး၊ လေးယောက်ဖြစ်နေပြီ။ So it’s not 3 dead, it’s 4. အခု သေဆုံးသူတွေ ဘယ်သူတွေလည်းဆိုတာ စုံစမ်း စားရင်းပြုစုနေပါတယ် We are still investigating who died.”

But even leaving Afghanistan does not necessarily mean a family is free from the threat of Taliban reprisal, Shinwari told CNN as he waited at Dulles International Airport to welcome another SIV family to America. "No One Left Behind" helped relocate the family to the US with the help of a grant it used to pay for their airfare.
"For most of SIVs who are here, because they still have their immediate family back in Afghanistan, their brothers, sisters, their parents and their other relatives, if the Taliban or the al Qaeda finds out that one member of the family was involved in assisting US military in Afghanistan, they're going to kill the entire family," Shinwari said. "If they can't catch the exact person, if they find out that person is here in the United States, they will go after their family. They will kill anybody in the family for the revenge.
