Authorities confirmed the elimination of the leader of the Afghan IG units

The leader of the “Islamic state” in Afghanistan, Abdul Hasib was killed on April 27 during the operation conducted jointly by the intelligence services of Afghanistan and the United States in the Eastern Nangarhar province. About it reports Reuters, citing American and Afghan officials.

It is believed that Hasib was appointed last year after the death of his predecessor, Hafiz Saeed Khan as a result of us air strikes, made a number of large-scale attacks, including on March 8 in the main military hospital in Kabul.

Last month, a Pentagon spokesman said that Haseeb probably has been eliminated in a RAID by American and Afghan forces in Nangarhar that killed two Rangers of the US army, but the final confirmation was not.

Haseeb instructed to carry out the attack March 8 at the main military hospital in Kabul, a group of militants disguised as doctors. The result was the killing of dozens of doctors and patients. Also he ordered to behead the local elders to their families and kidnap women and girls to force them to marry fighters.

The local branch of ISIS, also known as “Islamic State of Khorasan”, is active in 2015, fighting like the Taliban and Afghan and U.S. forces. It is believed that he maintains links with the main core of the IG in Iraq and Syria, but has significant operational autonomy.

“Islamic state” in Russia included in the list of terrorist organizations, for participation in activities which provide for criminal liability.
