The article reveals the existence of Shamshatoo, a refugee camp in Afghanistan which serves as an insurgent recruiting center. The center recruits teenage boys and trains them to become a jihadi who will fight for the war against the Americans in Afghanistan. At the camp, teachers praised the glories of jihad and recalled the country's history of resistant to foreign occupiers. The camp is unique in that it is administered and policed by refugees and operates under the aegis of the insurgent warlord Gulbuddin Hekmatyar.
