rasul_sayyafThe residence of a prominent former Jihadi leader Abdul Rab Rasool Sayyaf once again came under rocket in Kabul this morning.

Sources close to Sayyaf said at least two rockets were fired in the early hours of Friday morning which landed in the vicinity close to his house.

There are no reports regarding the casualties and no group has so far claimed responsibility behind the attack.

This comes as several rockets were fired on the residence of Sayyaf nearly a week ago but the attack did not result into any casualties.

Sayyaf is one of the most influential jihadi leaders and has been harshly criticizing the Taliban group for their insurgency activities.

He has been harshly criticizing the Taliban militants group and dismiss their so called jihad as a move against th principles of Islam.

Sayyaf reaffirmed his hard stance against the insurgent groups last month last month during a gathering on the eve of Mujahideen’s victory and called on militant groups last month to end slavery for the outsiders.

He insisted that the militant and terrorist groups fighting in the country should not brand their insurgency as Jihad, insisting that killing of children, women, destroying houses and committing other horrific crimes are not a holy war.
