The notorious Pakistan-based Haqqani terrorist network leaders have played a key role in resolving the leadership issues of the Taliban group which recently led to deadly infighting among some dissident groups in western Afghanistan.
According to the local media reports in Pakistan, the breakthrough was achieved with the mediation of Haqqani Network leader Sirajuddin Haqqani.
One of the major breakthroughs was the announcement of allegiance by Mullah Abdul Qayyum Zakir to Taliban supreme leader Mullah Akhtar Mansoor.
The other breakthroughs according to the reports were securing d top positions for Mullah Omar’s son Mullah Yaqoob, and brother Mullah Abdul Manan in the Taliban hierarchy.
According to the reports, allegiance by Mullah Zakir was made during a gathering where Haqqani network leader was also delivering a message.
No further details were given regarding the exact location where the gathering was organized but it is believed that the Haqqani Network leaders and the Taliban council are based in Pakistan where they use safe havens for planning and coordinating attacks in Afghanistan.
The Haqqani terrorist network is accused of staging numerous cross-border attacks from their base in North Waziristan, including the 19-hour siege at the US Embassy in Kabul in September 201
The Commander of US Central Command General Lloyd J Austin earlier said Pakistan should “take decisive action” against the Haqqani terrorist network, calling the network as the greatest threat to the US forces in Afghanistan.
Haqqani network has not played a key role in resolving the leadership issues of the Taliban group in Pakistan among Quetta Shura. Big hand behind the scene was played by ISI Director who sided with Mansoor since he is the one who killed Mullah Omar and ISI collected the money over his head. The new guys is more loyal compare to Mullah Omar who had secret contacts with Kazari’s brother Ahmad Wali Khan via Mullah Bradar. Mullah Omar wanted to make peace with Kabul since he was not fighting and just hiding in Karachi.The entire Afghan war is waged by ISI and with their direction, money and strategy just like was done in 1980s against the Soviets. Mullah Mansoor has the cash and killing any TB who does not accept his leadership. We are dealing with pure ISI agent. Mansoor statement when former ISI director Hamid Gul died he released a statement in Pakistani media saying his right hand got cut off due to lose of Hamid Gul.
Please, folks do not call them Taliban, rather they are Pakistan Armed Militia to kill Afghans and destroyed this country.
Haqqani network has been helping ISI since 1974. Haqqani was early member of Muslim Youth Movement which was created in Kabul in 1968 by Kabul University teachers and students. Haqqani himself and now his elder son Khalifa is on ISI important commander list who enjoys living and frequent trips to Mureey near Islamabad, and has huge investment in Pakistan in agriculture farm lands, transportation and high rise buildings. He also has Pakistani I.D Card which makes special with freedom of movement inside Pakistan with armed escort and black window card. Pakistan always support good terrorists who kill Afghans and destroy Afghanistan.
Afghanistan is doing the same as it is sheltering and providing safe heavens to TTP and ISIS in Afghanistan but you need to remember that the good terrorists of Afghanistan ( TTP and ISIS ) will bite Afghanistan like a snake ! Your government and X-Afghan National Army and X-Intelligence service were dreaming to create an Azad Pashtoonistan with the help of Terrorists who used to come along with the Afghan national army in Pakistani tribal areas ! Now you people can create Azad Pashtoonistan if you want to but there will be a price for it ! As long as Haqqani Network is concerned that HN is just a perception and it does not exist in reality!
