Six TTP terrorists killed in Afghanistan IED blast


KABUL: (DNA) At least six terrorists were killed and 15 others were injured on Thursday in an improvised explosive device (IED) attack targetting the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) in Afghanistan’s Khost province. According to the details, an explosion occurred in the Khost province of Afghanistan in which six terrorists of TTP were killed and 15 others were injured. The dead militants were identified as Abdul Manan, Alam Khan Mudakhel, Kajir and three unidentified terrorists. Among the injured terrorists are commander Fazl Amin, commander Muhammad alias Tofan, commander Noor Payo Khan, Faqirullah, Turzai, Sat Kare, Ali Sir Khan, Zubair, Hijratullah, Kamal, Sher Afzal, Bakhtullah, Zubihullah and two unknown terrorists. In a separate incident, Makram Harasani, the in-charge of TTP’s Umar Media Group, was seriously injured, according to sources. It is to be mentioned here that last week, a high-powered delegation led by Defence Minister Khawaja Asif visited Kabul and managed to secure a “fresh commitment” from the Afghan Taliban to tackling the renewed threat posed by the TTP. Officials were confident that the outcome of the visit would be visible in upcoming weeks as Pakistan expects certain actions by the Afghan Taliban against terrorist outfits operating out of Afghan soil.
