Senior Jamaat-ul-Ahrar member killed in Paktya

Bayan News – Pakistani media have reported that Mohammad Dawoodzee, a senior member of Jamaat-ul-Ahrar, a splinter group of the Pakistani Taliban, was killed in the center of Paktya province.

The Express Tribune newspaper reported that he was the head of Jamaat-ul-Ahrar in Karachi, Pakistan, and was killed by unidentified armed individuals in eastern Afghanistan’s Paktya province.

According to the newspaper report, the senior Jamaat-ul-Ahrar member was involved in deadly attacks and targeted killings throughout Pakistan.

According to the Express Tribune report, Dawoodzee’s two brothers, named Mian Jaffar and Qari Qadeem, were also killed during operations by US forces during the final years of the previous government led by Ashraf Ghani.

However, according to published reports, Jamaat-ul-Ahrar merged with the Pakistani Taliban in August 2020, but after the founder of the Pakistani Taliban was killed in eastern Afghanistan a year ago, Jamaat-ul-Ahrar separated from the Pakistani Taliban.

This senior member of Jamaat-ul-Ahrar was killed in eastern Afghanistan while senior Pakistani military officials recently claimed that the Pakistani Taliban create safe havens in Afghan territory and organize attacks against the army of Pakistan.

In recent days, more than 20 Pakistani army personnel have been killed in Pakistani Taliban attacks.
