Taliban executes Amrullah Saleh's brother: Report

Kabul: The Taliban have executed the brother of Amrullah Saleh, the former Afghan vice president who became one of the leaders of anti-Taliban opposition forces in the Panjshir valley. 

"They killed him yesterday and would not let us bury him. They kept saying his body should rot," news agency Reuters quoted Ebadullah as saying.

Also, an Aghan journalist Zahra Rahimi claimed that sources have confirmed the death of Amrullah Saleh’s brother Rohullah Azizi.

"Amrullah Saleh’s brother Rohullah Azizi was killed by the Taliban following his detention by the group while attempting to flee Panjshir, sources confirm."


Last week, the Taliban claimed that Panjshir province has been taken under complete control' Taliban spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid, said in a statement that the Taliban has captured Panjshir province.

However, fives days after all districts of Panjshir and the provincial centre were captured by the Taliban, a commander of the Resistance Front in a recorded video message said the Taliban’s presence in Panjshir does not mean the end of the war.
