Afghanistan: A major leader of the Pakistani Taliban narrowly escaped a drone attack in Afghanistan. A top leader of the Pakistan Taliban escaped safely from a suspected drone strike at a safe house in eastern Afghanistan, the militant group said on Friday. The drone strike on Thursday evening came a week after the ceasefire between the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and the government, with terrorists accusing Islamabad of killing its fighters.
Pakistan Taliban commander narrowly saved
It is said that Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan is a separate faction but they have nexus with the new leaders of Afghanistan. After the formation of TTP in 2007, this organization had committed horrific violence in Pakistan. TTP sources currently in Afghanistan told the media that Maulvi Fakir Mohammad was the target of a drone strike in Chaugam village of Kunar, the eastern province bordering Pakistan. A source said that Maulvi Fakir Mohammad was not present at that time. While two fighters of Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan were injured in this drone attack.

US-backed government had earlier arrested
It is being told that Pakistan’s TTP fighters were crossing the border with Afghanistan and using that area as a hideout. Mohammad was arrested by the previous US-backed Kabul government and spent years in Afghanistan’s infamous Bagram prison, but was released in August after the Taliban arrived. Although it is not clear who was responsible for Thursday’s attack, both Pakistan and the United States have previously used unmanned aerial devices to carry out killings in the region.
Afghan Taliban spokesman Bilal Karimi told media from Kabul that the attack was an explosive fired from the ground. The TTP emerged 14 years ago and has been accused of nearly 70,000 murders by successive Pakistani governments. At present, after the victory of the Taliban in Afghanistan, Pakistan is now trying to prevent the return of the TTP.
