  • Islamic State Leader in Pakistan Afghanistan Killed

    Pentagon has confirmed reports that a joint operation by US and Afghan special forces have killed Islamic State’s leader in Pakistan and Afghanistan, Hafiz Saeed Khan, in Afghanistan’s Nangharhar province. Reports say Haffiz’s death is a body blow to ISIS’s effort of expanding its clout in Pak-Afghan region, spilling over from its Syria-Iraq region. This is the first time in days Pentagon has confirmed reports that Hafiz was killed on July 26 in a US drone strike.
