Pakistani Taliban commander killed in Afghanistan

26 August, 2012

KABUL/PESHAWAR: A NATO air strike in eastern Afghanistan has killed a commander of the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), NATO and the Taliban said on Saturday.

Both sides identified the dead commander as Mullah Dadullah and said several of his comrades were also killed in the attack on Friday.

A NATO statement said Dadullah's deputy, Shakir, was also killed. "Dadullah, also known as Jamal, was responsible for the movement of fighters and weapons, as well as attacks against Afghan and coalition forces," the statement said.

It said Afghan and coalition forces backing the Kabul government had "conducted a post-strike assessment" and found that there had been no civilian casualties or damage to civilian property.

TTP members as well as Pakistani intelligence officials said Dadullah had been killed in a house in eastern Konar province, along with 12 bodyguards.

End.
