Afghan Taliban kills 2 top ISIS commanders in Kabul


Kabul: Two Islamic State (IS) commanders have been killed by the Taliban during an anti-terrorism raid in Kabul. The Taliban initiated the raid, which resulted in a massive exchange of fire between the two groups.

The former war minister of the IS-Khorasan province, Qari Fateh, was among those killed. Fateh was the mastermind behind embassy attacks in Kabul that targeted China, Pakistan, and Russia.

The other commander killed was Ijaz Amin Ahangar, who was the IS-K chief for the Indian subcontinent. He was a designated terrorist and wanted by the Indian government for carrying out attacks on civilians.

The US has previously described IS-K as the “deadliest” of all IS groups. The Taliban’s move comes after repeated attacks on diplomatic missions by the terrorist group.

Taliban spokesperson Zabihullah Mujahid confirmed the news of the deaths of the two commanders.
