Earlier the US Ambassador to Pakistan was summoned by the country’s foreign ministry over the airstrike killing Taliban leader in Balochistan province. The Taliban Chief was targeted in Pakistan late on Saturday afternoon as he was travelling in a vehicle.
This comes as the Afghan officials have long been criticizing Pakistan for allowing the anti-government armed militant groups to use its soil from where they plan and coordinate attacks in Afghanistan.
The Afghan National Army Chief of Staff General Qadam Shah Shaheem instructed the Afghan commandos to use all force against the enemies of the country.
He was speaking during a gathering in Kabul on the occasion of the graduation of 900 commandos of the Afghan National Army.
He also urged the Afghan commando forces to treat the Prisoners of War well and not to harm them and also prevent causing harm to the properties of the civilians. He urged the Afghan forces to take better care of the equipment, insisting that the equipment and technology belong to the Afghan nation.
The graduation of 900 commando forces could further boost the capabilities of the Afghan National Security and Defense Forces (ANSDF) who are fighting a resurgent Taliban. But the observers believe that the Afghan Special Forces play a key role in fight against terrorism, specifically for the night operations they conduct which have had a considerable achievement during the recent months.
At least 8 soldiers of the Afghan National Army (ANA) forces were martyred in fight against terrorism in the past 24 hours, the Ministry of Defense (MoD) said. According to an operational update by the Ministry of Defense (MoD), the soldiers were martyred while conducting counter-terrorism operations against the internal and external terrorists.
There has been a sharp rise in the casualties of the Afghan national security forces since they took full control of the security responsibilities from the coalition forces at the start of last year.
According to the earlier estimates by security officials, the Afghan army deaths stood at 4 service members daily on average which is mainly caused due to improvised explosive device (IED) attacks. The Afghan forces have increased counter-terrorism operations to suppress the anti-government armed militant groups who are preparing to step up attacks as they announced their spring offensive earlier last week. At least 61 militants were killed and dozens of others were wounded in the latest clearance operations of the Afghan National Security and Defense (ANSDF), the Ministry of Defense (MoD) said. According to a statement by MoD, the operations were conducted in the past 24 hours in various parts of the country with the support of the Afghan Air Force and Artillery units. The statement further added 30 of the militanst were killed and several others were wounded in Chemtal district of balkh and 11 others were killed and 7 more were wounded in Suzma Qala district of Sar-e-Pul province.
A least 7 militants were killed during an operation in Baghlan Markazi district of Baghlan and 10 others were wounded, MoD said.
The statement also added that 9 militants wre killed and 7 others were wounded during an operation in Dehrawood district of Uruzgan and 4 more were killed in Yakya Khel district of Paktika. The anti-government armed militant groups including the Taliban insurgents have not commented regarding the report so far. The United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) condemned a suicide attack in Kabul which left at least 11 people dead. The statement further added that the suicide bomber detonated against a shuttle bus transporting employees of the Maidan Wardak provincial court.
According to the UN mission, it has verified 14 separate attacks targeting judges, prosecutors and judicial staff, which have resulted in nine civilian deaths and 19 civilians injured, as well as four incidents of abduction of judicial staff since January 1 2016. The Taliban militants group released a photograph of the group’s newly-appointed supreme leader Mawlavi Haibatullah Akhundzada.
No further details have been given regarding the background of Mawlavi Akhundzada who replaced Mullah Akhtar Mansoor 3 days after he was killed in a drone strike.
Meanwhile the former Afghan Intelligence Chief Rahmatullah Nabil has said Mawlavi Akhundzada was a village Mullah and has no military or political experience. In a Twitter message, Nabil said the newly-appointed Taliban supreme leader is 56-year-old but lacks military and political experience.
He also added that one of his deputies, the 24-year-old Mullah Yaqoob, son of Mullah Mohammad Omar, also lacks military and political experience. But according to Nabil, his other deputy, the leader of the Haqqani terrorist network, Sirajuddin Haqqani will be defacto leader of the group.
Earlier experts had warned that the appointment of Sirajuddin Haqqani would be dangerous for the country amid concerns that the group would further intensify its attacks. The Taliban group released a statement to confirm the death of Mullah Akhtar Mansoor and appointment of Mawlavi Akhundzada and his deputies earlier today. Militants attacking the US and Afghan forces will be targeted and will have no safe haven, the US Department of State has said. Toner was responding to a question regarding the US airstrike that targeted the Taliban supreme leader Mullah Akhtar Mansoor. He also added ” And I also think that it sends the message that the Taliban must decide what its future is going to be and whether it’s going to be part of a peaceful political future for Afghanistan. The Taliban supreme leader Mullah Mansoor was targeted in the vicinity of Balochistan province of Pakistan late on Saturday afternoon. His death has been confirmed by the Afghan government, security institutions and the US authorities. The Afghan government said Mullah Mansoor sought refuge in the stranger’s soil and was repeatedly committing deception, concealing facts, killing innocent people and terrorizing people as well as smuggling drugs and preventing Afghanistan to gain development by emphasizing on continued war in the country.
Meanwhile, the US President Barack Obama said Mansoor rejected efforts by the Afghan government to seriously engage in peace talks and end the violence that has taken the lives of countless innocent Afghan men, women and children. At least eleven people were killed and ten others were wounded in an explosion in Kabul province earlier today.
A spokesman for the Ministry of Interior earlier confirmed the incident and said at least ten people were killed and four others were wounded. Najib Danish sad the attack took place in the 5th police district of Kabul targeting a vehicle carrying the appellate court employees of Maidan WArdak. No group including the Taliban militants has claimed responsibility behind the incident yet. Earlier the Taliban group vowed to target the judiciary workers in retaliation to the execution of a number of group’s militants by the Afghan government.
The Afghan government executed at least six militants over terror offences in capital Kabul earlier this month. The execution of the militants followed days after a deadly attack rocked capital Kabul leaving at least 64 people dead and 347 others wounded. The Taliban militants group confirmed the death of the group’s supreme leader Mullah Akhtar Mansoor and announced Mawlavi Haibatullah Akhundzada as his successor.
A statement by the group said Mawlavi Akhundzada was appointed as the successor of Mansoor after he was unanimously voted by the leadership council members.
The statement further added that Sirajuddin Haqqani and Mullah Omar’s son Mulah Yaqoob have been appointed as deputy supreme leader of the group. Mullah Mansoor was killed in a US drone strike in the vicinity of Balochistan province of Pakistan late on Saturday afternoon. Earlier reports suggested that the leader of Haqqani terrorist network Sirajuddin Haqqani and Mullah Omar’s son were the possible successor of Mullah Mansoor. The group on Tuesday said the death of its leader will not have any affect on the group’s insurgency. The US Department of Defense first informed regarding the attack on Mulllah Mansoor but his killing was cofirmed by the Afghan security institutions including the National Directorate of Security. Earlier the Afghan government said Mullah Mansoor sought refuge in the stranger’s soil and was repeatedly committing deception, concealing facts, killing innocent people and terrorizing people as well as smuggling drugs and preventing Afghanistan to gain development by emphasizing on continued war in the country.
It also added that the supporters of Mullah Mansoor were sparing no efforts in committing atrocities against the noble and Muslim people of Afghanistan.
The leader of Hezb-e-Islami Gulbuddin Hekmatyar has offered condolences to the family and supporters of Mullah Akhtar Mansoor over his death.
Hekmatyar has released an unusual statement amid ongoing peace efforts between his party and the Afghan government, calling on Taliban to form a coalition with him.
He has called on Taliban to jointly work with him to achieve the joint targets and resolve the crisis in the country. The leader of Hezb-e-Islami has also asked Taliban to jointly work with him in his ongoing peace efforts and resistance and jihad and for the future of the country. The Taliban militants earlier rejected to form a coalition with Hezb-e-Islami and on numerous occasions fighting erupted among the fighters of the two groups, according to VOA’s Afghanistan service.
This comes as the Presidential Palace announced Tuesday that there is no specific timeframe for the conclusion of peace deal with Hezb-e-Islami led by Gulbuddin Hekmatyar. Deputy presidential spokesman Syed Zafar Hashemi told reporters that peace process is always complicated and it would be a mistake to confirm a timeframe regarding the peace agreement, insisting that small and big changes normally takes place everyday, in every seconds and at the final seconds of peace process. Meanwhile the Afghan government signed the draft peace agreement with Hezb-e-Islami last week. Deputy Chief Executive Mohammad Khan told reporters last week that the draft agreement has been signed and will become enforceable once the Hezb-e-Islami party signs it. The US Defense Secretary Ash Carter has said one roadblock to peace in Afghanistan has been eliminated with the removal of Mullah Akhtar Mansoor from the battlefield.
He said removing Mansur from the battlefield eliminates one roadblock to peace in Afghanistan.
Carter reaffirmed Department of Defense support to the Afghan government in its efforts to build a brighter and safe future for the people of Afghanistan. President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani issued a new decree following the conclusion of a review commission to study the route for the 500kV transmission line. The presidential decree states that a 220kW double circuit power line will be transmitted from from Doshi to the central provinces to transmit 300 megawatt of electricity that would be enough for the entire central provinces. The decree further states that the power 220kV power line should be executed to include the construction of a 220kV (double circuit) electricity network to transmit 300 megawatt of electricity from Doshi to center of Bamyan with the start of the project to be from the first of the month of June and should conclude in the solar year 1398. A substation should also be constructed in Bamyan province with the execution of the project to be the start of the month of June and must finish in the solar year 1398. The decree also states that a distribution network should be constructed in Bamyan to supply electricity to at least 20,000 families.
The relevant institutions have also been instructed to present a plan for the construction of electricity supply network in the other central provinces and must submit it to the cabinet for approval in six months. A thermal power factory should also be built in Eshpeshta area of Bamyan and a 500kV transmission line should be built from Eshpeshta to Arghande. The decree states that the Ministry of Finance must arrange the funding for the project and should present to the parliament through the government as part of 1395 national budget review.
The procurement work of 500kV transmission line from north to south will resume as per the findings of the commission and in consideration with the execution of the technical and procurement work of the transmission line in the past two and half year. The Presidential Palace announced Tuesday that there is no specific timeframe for the conclusion of peace deal with Hezb-e-Islami led by Gulbuddin Hekmatyar.


Deputy presidential spokesman Syed Zafar Hashemi told reporters that peace process is always complicated and it would be a mistake to confirm a timeframe regarding the peace agreement. Hashemi further added that small and big changes normally takes place everyday, in every seconds and at the final seconds of peace process. He said the Afghan government will update the Afghan people once the two sides reach to an agreement. This comes as the Afghan government signed the draft peace agreement with Hezb-e-Islami last week.
Meanwhile, the Chief Executive Officer Abdullah Abdullah said Sunday that the Afghan government is close to conclude a peace deal with Hezb-e-Islami led by Gulbuddin Hekmatyar. Abdullah further added that negotiatiosn between the High Peace Council and Hezb-e-Islami are underway. However, he insisted that the national interests of the country and the Afghan people are a top priority in all key issues, insisting that there will be no negligence in this regard.
He also emphasized that anyone joining peace process should lay down arms, stop insurgency activities, respect the Afghan constitution and reach to an agreement with the government. The acting provincial governor of northern Balkh province of Afghanistan Ata Mohammad Noor has said the killing of Taliban supreme leader Mullah Akhtar Mansoor may lead to more fighting and suicide attacks in coming weeks.
Noor further added that the authorities had to brace for a surge in violence as rival candidates established their claims to the leadership of the insurgency.
He also pointed to a spate of suicide bombings as well as the intense fighting that led to the temporary fall of the northern city of Kunduz last year as Mansoor looked to consolidate his newly won position. In the meantime, Noor said some of the Taliban militants may surrender if the government works well pointing towards a scope for the government to exploit a likely fracturing in the insurgency. This comes as the Taliban group issued a statement late on Monday stating that the death of the group’s leader will not have any impact on the insurgency activities of the group.
The statement by Taliban further added that the campaign by the Taliban militants is not for a single person which would end or become weak by his death, warning that the death of their leader will spark more revolution. On the other hand, reports emerged Monday regarding the start of negotiations among the Taliban leadership council to appoint a successor for Mullah Akhtar Mansoor. The reports further added that the leader of Haqqani terrorist network Sirajuddin Haqqani, Mullah Omar’s son and his brother are among the possible successors of Mullah Mansoor.
The government of India is mulling to deliver more helicopters to Afghanistan in a bid to help boost the airpower of the Afghan National Security and Defense Forces. The Office of the President in a statement said the issue was discussed during a meeting between President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The statement further added President Ghani thanked India’s support and cooperation with Afghanistan, specifically in delivery Mi-25 gunship helicopters and urged the Indian leadership to further assist the Afghan forces. In response, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the relevant security sector in the Indian government has been instructed to seek ways for the delivery of more helicopters to Afghanistan. President Ghani also hailed the Indian government for supporting Afghanistan in implementation of key infrastructure projects, including the Salma dam.
He also pointed towards the construction of the Afghan Parliament Building by India and said such projects will further boost bilateral ties between the two nations.
Afghanistan received three of the four Mi-25 gunship helicopters from India late in the month of December last year and days before the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Kabul. The decision for the delivery of Mi-25 gunship helicopters was concluded during the recent visit of Afghan National Security Adviser Mohammad Hanif Atmar to New Delhi.
India has remained one of the key donors for the reconstruction of Afghanistan following the fall of the Taliban regime in 2001. Since 2002, the Government of India has committed USD 2 billion dollars to the socio-economic rebuilding of the Afghan state and society in accordance with the development priorities of the Government and the people of Afghanistan. The supreme leader of the Taliban group Mullah Akhtar Mansoor was frequently using Karachi airport to travel to other countries with reports suggesting he travelled abroad through Jinnah International airport for at least 18 times. However, a local news channel in Pakistan has reported that Mullah Mansoor travelled to Dubai 9 times using the airport and once to Bahrain.
Citing the travel history of Mullah Mansoor, the local Geo.tv reported Mullah Mansoor travelled between the three countries from 2006 to 2012.
Muallah Mansoor first landed in Karachi via a private airline flight on the 12th of March 2006 from Dubai and approximately five months later caught a flight with the same airline to Dubai on the 23 August 2006 only to return on the 4th of October the same year, according to his travel history.
He was among the prominent commanders of the group when he was travelling to the other countries and his flights have been reported to be in September of 2007, 3rd of October 2007, 11th January 2008, 23rd November 2008, 5th December 2008, 2nd January 2010, 24th January 2010. His last travelled has been reported to take place in 2012 when he caught a flight to Dubai on the 26th of January.
The records available show, pictures of Mullah Mansour aka Wali Muhammad taken at the immigration counter, as well as in the airport premises. Mullah Mansoor was killed in an airstrike carried out by the US forces in the vicinity of Balochistan province late on Saturday afternoon. The Afghan government confirmed that Afghan Taliban leader Mullah Akhtar Mansour has been killed in a US air strike in a remote border area between Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Mansour assumed the leadership of the militant organization in July 2015 soon after the whistleblowers revealed that the Taliban’s spiritual leader, Mullah Omar, had actually died two years ago. Mansoor was born in 1965 in the southern province of Kandahar and served as civil aviation minister during the Taliban’s regime in Afghanistan. Without an iota of doubt, Mansoor was gradually tightening his control on the Taliban movement by attracting other leading Taliban members, including a son and a brother the deceased spiritual leader and by carrying massive attacks on Afghan security forces. The fierce competition for the leadership of Taliban will be among Sarajuddin Haqqani, a close ally of Mullah Mansoor and a key commander of the Haqqani network, and Mullah Abdullah Rasool, the rival of Mullah Mansoor, who openly opposed Mullah Mansoor’s selection. Sarajuddin Haqqani, who became one of two deputy Taliban commanders last year, has the highest chance of becoming the new leader of Taliban because he has been in charge of the day-to-day military operations of Taliban since last year and maintains close contacts with many senior Taliban commanders. On the other hand, Mullah Rasool’s chances of succeeding Mullah Mansoor is minimal to none since his Taliban faction has suffered some shocking battlefield defeats in southern Afghanistan at the hands of Mullah Mansoor. Mullah Omar’s son, Mullah Mohammad Yaqoob, and brother, Mullah Abdul Manan, who recently secured senior positions within the Taliban ranks could also be in the reckoning.
The faith of the peace talks will depend on who will replaces Mullah Mansoor and how the Taliban will manage to come under one command.
At least four civilians were killed and five others were wounded in an explosion in southern Kandahar province of Afghanistan, local officials said. The incident took place around 7 am local time in the vicinity of Shahwali Kot district targeting a vehicle of the civilians.
Provincial governor’s spokesman Samim Khpolwak said a passenger mini van struck an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) planted by the militants. He said an investigation is underway regarding the incident and there are fears that the death toll would rise. No group including the Taliban militants has so far claimed responsibility behind the incident. The Taliban insurgents and militants belonging to the other insurgent groups are frequently using Improvised Explosive Device (IED) as the weapon of their choice to target the security forces.
The IEDs are the main contributors to the casualties of the Afghan security forces but are also considered as a key factor in growing civilian casualties. At least 11 civilians belonging to a same family were killed in a similar attack in northern Baghlan province of Afghanistan last week.
The Taliban shadow governor for southern Helmand province has been killed in airstrike in the restive Marjah district, local security officials said. The airstrike was carried out late on Sunday night targeting the Mullah Manan and his fighters in the vicinity of Marjah district.
He said the airstrike was carried out as part of Khanjar operations which were launched six days ago in Marjah to suppress the insurgency activities of the Taliban militants. This comes as at least 8 militants were killed during an attack on the Taliban prison in Marjah district earlier. The Ministry of Defense said 7 militants were also arrested an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) manufacturing factory was destroyed along with a vehicle and two motorcycles belonging to the militants. At least 19 hostages were also released from the prison belonging to the Taliban militants during the raid, MoD added. The US Ambassador to Pakistan was summoned in the Foreign Ministry of Pakistan for an airstrike that targeted the Taliban Chief Mullah Akhtar Mansoor.
The statement also added that the Special Assistant to the Prime Minister also underlined that Pakistan and the United States had been closely coordinating in the fight against the menace of terrorism and that this cooperation needed to be maintained. The Taliban Chief Mullah Akhtar Mansoor was killed in an airstrike invlving US drones in Balochistan province of Afghanistan late on Saturday. The attack on Mansoor was widely welcomed by the Afghan government and security institutions as well as the US officials who called the elimination of Mansoor a major achievement in fight against terrorism. The Taliban militants group in Afghanistan has said the death of its leader will not have any affect on the group’s insurgency. The group issued a statement following the confirmation of Mullah Akhtar Mansoor’s death in a US airstrike in Pakistan. The statement said the campaign by the Taliban militants is not for a single person which would end or become weak by his death. The statement further added that the group’s insurgency is aimed at implementing Sharia in the country and there will be no affect in their fight even if Mullah Mansoor has been killed.
Admitting that the death of its leaders is a major harm to the group, the statement said their death will spark more revolution. The death of Mullah Akhtar Mansoor was officially confirmed by the US President Barack Obama, Afghan government, and Afghan security institutions. Obama said the death of Mansoor was an “important milestone” in efforts to bring peace to Afghanistan.
The US President Barack Obama reaffirmed the United States support to strengthen the Afghan armed forces and the Afghan government.

Sharif conveyed his concern over the airstrike during a meeting at Pakistan Army’s General Headquarters. David Hale was called in today by the Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs, Syed Tariq Fatemi, to express concern over the drone strike on Pakistani territory on Saturday, 21 May 2016,” a statement by the Foreign Affairs Ministry of Pakistan said.
Shaheem said the Afghan civilians should not be harmed as a result of the capabilities of the Afghan commando forces but it should be enemies who should fear.
Shaheem pointed towards the state of the art equipment in custody of the Afghan special forces.
Shaheem also hailed the Afghan security forces for their bravery and devotion in fight against terrorism. The selection of a new Taliban leader will be disputed, with rival groups in the Taliban ranks lobbying for their own leader and Pakistan struggling to appoint their own man. Haqqani was also very instrumental in reconciling differences amongst Taliban commanders and bringing the spiritual leader’s family to the Taliban fold.
Many of his key supporters died alongside many of his men in a battle with the Taliban’s main group. For now, the talks, which opened with a meeting on July 7, 2015 appeared to be off while the Taliban discussed their future.
