TTP Commander-in-Chief Omar Khalid Khorasani killed in attack in Afghanistan – Latest News – The Nation

Omar Khalid Khorasani, a top terrorist in the outlawed Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), was killed along with his three other associates in an attack in Afghanistan.

According to sources familiar with the details, Abdul Wali alias Omar Khalid Khorasani was killed in an attack in Paktika province in Afghanistan.

“Three of his associates were also killed in the attack,” they said, adding that among the dead were Mufti Hassan and Hafiz Doulat of the TTP.

This is not the first time that top TTP terrorists have been killed in Afghanistan after the Taliban seized power in the country.

In March this year, Abdul Wahab Larak, a high-level outlaw TTP militant wanted by security forces for multi-terrorist acts, was murdered by unidentified men in Kandahar City, Afghanistan.

Abdul Wahab Larak was the leader of the Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and was planning attacks in Karachi.

On March 22, he was assassinated by two unidentified men in Kandahar in the morning. He was wanted for multiple terrorist acts in Pakistan, particularly in the Sindh province, and belongs to the Kurdish group Usman Saifullah of Lashkar-i-Jhangvi.

He joined TTP in August 2020 and his name was also in CTD Sindh’s most wanted list. He was behind the January 2015 suicide bombing of an imam baragah in Shikarpur that killed 53 people and injured 57 others.

He was also involved in planning attacks on army airbases, the PAF base in Samungli, targeted assassinations of a minority sect, and multiple attacks in North Waziristan.
