The Taliban Head of Economy for the northern Afghan province of Faryab, Abdul Rahman Munawar, was assassinated by unknown armed men, local sources said.

According to local sources, unknown armed men assassinated the Taliban official, Abdul Rahman Munawar, on Saturday, October 8, when he was on his way to his house.

The Taliban Head of Information and Culture for Faryab province, Shamsullah Mohammad, confirmed the veracity of the assassination and said that the incident took place in a village in the Qaisar district of Faryab.

“Abdul Rahman Munawar, the head of economic affairs of the Taliban in this province, was killed by unknown armed men while he was on his way home,” Mohammadi told the media.

The Taliban information and culture official added that while the assassination’s perpetrators were successful in escaping the scene, Taliban forces are still looking for them and that an investigation is ongoing.

The Taliban forces are actively looking for the two unidentified armed men who killed Abdul Rahman Munawar.

Security officials for the Taliban have stated that they do not yet understand the motivation behind the murder and that no individual, group, or organization has claimed responsibility as of yet.

This follows the Taliban’s assertions that they have established and upheld security in Afghanistan. However, since the group seized power last year, the crime rate has increased, and even Taliban officials are not immune from becoming a victim.
