Pakistan Targeted TTP Leaders' Residences in Kabul, Says Saleh


Amrullah Saleh, former vice-president of Afghanistan, said that Pakistan has targetted the residence of Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) leaders in Kabul.

According to Saleh, the bombing took place after some in the leadership of TTP did not heed to Pakistani cleric delegation’s warnings.

Last week, a delegation of Pakistani clerics, led by Mufti Usmani, visited Kabul and met Noor Wali Mehsud, the leader of TTP.

Saleh said that the Pakistan Air Force has directly attacked targets in Kabul for the first time since 1947.

Saleh added that it is not feasible to identify the type of rocket and its launch device because, according to him, the Haqqani network is in possession of the area, as the operational arm of Inter Service Intelligence (ISI), Pakistan's intelligence agency.

However, earlier, Rahmatullah Nabil, the former intelligence chief of Afghanistan, quoted his sources as saying that on Sunday morning American drones appeared in the airspace of Kabul and attacked different parts of the city. According to Nabil, based on the Doha agreement, the US supports the Taliban in suppressing Islamic State-Khurasan (IS-K) in Afghanistan.

Abdul Nafe Takor, the spokesperson of the Taliban's Ministry of Interior, said that Sunday's explosion was caused by a rocket landing at an empty house in Shirpur area of district 10 in Kabul.
