Head of ISIS in Afghanistan killed by US special forces

StaffRebel Columnist

The Islamic State's Afghanistan leader, Abdul Hasib, has been killed during a raid in the eastern province of Nangarhar by US and Afghan forces.

According to The Guardian, Hasib was promoted after his predecessor Hafiz Saeed Khan died in a US drone strike.

He is believed to have ordered a series of high profile attacks including one on a hospital in Kabul on March 8.

In addition, it is reported that he ordered ISIS jihadists to behead elders in front of their families and kidnap girls who would then be forced to marry Islamic State terrorists.

ISIS in Afghanistan is believed to maintain links with the main Islamic State movement in Iraq and Syria but has independence. It is sometimes called Islamic State Khorasan (ISIS-K). It has been fighting the US, Afghan forces and even the Taliban.

The US military issued a statement saying that 35 Islamic State fighters and several high ranking commanders were also killed in the 27 April raid.

The “mother of all bombs” was devastating — but it was used against the wrong target, for the wrong reasons. Analysts and Trump administration officials, including Vice President Mike Pence, have suggested that the bomb was targeted more at intimidating North Korea and Syria than battlefield objectives in Afghanistan.
Focusing on ISIS: Are we losing sight of a bigger enemy in Afghanistan?

Drew Wakariuk, God help us is right.
The world is facing a huge crisis, and like you, I think it will only get worse before it gets better.

A good start, Justin is probably crying in a closet somewhere as is Obama.

Carole Masse, you’re right, we are living in a nightmare as a result of Trudeau’s government.

Thank you Tammie for your link. I didn’t know that the leader of ISIS applauded Kalid. What a nightmare are we living with Trudope.

Canada Blasphemy Motion Passed… ISIS Proud of “Loyal Servant” Iqra Khalid! Published March 30/17
In the description Craig Pajek
MP’s in the Canadian House of Commons recently passed the highly controversial m-103. According to a recent Angus Reid Institute poll, 59% of Canadians who had an opinion said they were OPPOSED to the motion. Chillingly, one group strongly in favor of the new motion is ISIS, whose leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi tweeted out the groups approval, and congratulated miss Khalid on her effective use of taqiyya in getting the motion approved.
His tweet is from March 26th, and I haven’t heard reports saying he is dead.
Link to Craig Pajek’s video. It is an excellent commentary and he provides a screen shot of Isis leader’s message, notice the disgusting twitter handle he uses, 4:12

We will never finish that war, until the powerful ones who financed them and give them arms are removed. And that will not happen anytime soon. They are thousands waiting in line to replace that leader in Afghanistan. So what are we doing in those countries except making sure that the military industrial complex makes big profits. Or maybe we want them to enjoy the benefits of democracy? LOL.

The question remains… Who promoted him, who are his superiors.??
Want to disable Isis…?? Take out the ones who have the power to promote those into high ranking positions… Anything less than that is not cutting off the head of the snake.!!

Gen. John Nicholson, the commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, said, “Any ISIS member that comes to Afghanistan will meet the same fate.”
