Pakistani Taliban faction claims spokesman was captured in Afghanistan

This is exactly the type of article that makes me sad and weepy until I hear this song.

 

Smoke um if you got um!

He will not be missed.

One less goat fucker on the planet!

The leadership of Jamaat-ul-Ahrar is known to have ties to multiple jihadist organizations operating in the region. Omar Khalid al Khurasani, one of its top leaders, is closely linked to al Qaeda emir Ayman al Zawahiri.

Khurasani has called for the imposition of sharia law and the establishment of a global caliphate.

He has also said that a primary goal of the Pakistani Taliban is to obtain nuclear weapons. [See FDD’s Long War Journal reports, Taliban commander wants Pakistan’s nukes, global Islamic caliphate and Jamaat-ul-Ahrar celebrates 9/11 attack.]

 

 

 

On Apr. 17, the Pakistani military said that Ehsanullah Ehsan, the spokesman of Jamaat-ul-Ahrar, a dangerous faction of the Movement of the Taliban in Pakistan, voluntarily surrendered. Today, Jamaat-ul-Ahrar insisted that Ehsan was “arrested” in eastern Afghanistan and later turned over to the military.

 

Major General Asif Ghafoor, the spokesman for the Pakistani military’s Inter-Services Public Relations branch, claimed that Ehsan “turned himself into our security agencies,” Dawn reported.

Pakistani authorities were eager to trumpet Ehsan’s alleged surrender as a victory. “There can be

“There can be no bigger achievement for Pakistan than the fact that our biggest enemies are now realizing the error of their ways and are turning themselves in,” Ghafoor said.

However, Jamaat-ul-Ahrar disputes Ghafoor’s account. Earlier today, the group issued a statement attributed to Asad Mansour, its new spokesman, claiming that Ehsan was captured on Mar. 7 by Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence Directorate (ISI-D) along with “three other colleagues” and subsequently turned over to the Pakistani military.

In case the reader missed the theme song.

 

According to Mansour, Ehsan was captured in Afghanistan’s Paktika province, which borders Pakistan and is a known haven for multiple jihadist groups.

Mansour accused the Pakistani military of using “the Mujahideen prisoners to lure” other jihadists into negotiations and their eventual “surrender.”

Ehsan has been an influential spokesman and the face of Pakistani jihadist groups for the past decade.

He served as the spokesman for the Movement of the Taliban in Pakistan up until 2014, when Jamaat-ul-Ahrar split off from the group and formed its own branch.

Ehsan joined Jamaat-ul-Ahrar and became its spokesman. Jamaat-ul-Ahrar reunited with the Movement of the Taliban in Pakistan earlier this year but has maintained a degree of autonomy.

Pakistani Taliban emir calls for unity, jihad, and global caliphate

The Cult we cause Islam is dangerous enough without another towel head coming up with the idea that the world must be governed by the will of Allah through a single caliphate using overt jihad to accomplish their deed.

 

In our new series, now you see them, soon you won’t we recount the tail of a Taliban emir calling for unity through jihad to unite Islam with one mission:

To follow the will of Allah through the establishment of a single caliphate.

Solution:

 

More of these until these heathens submit to the will of the armed forces of the peace-loving countries of the world

Now you see him, soon you won’t

 

Mullah Fazlullah, the emir of the Movement of the Taliban in Pakistan (TTP), said that his group’s ultimate goal is “to implement the law of Allah on the Earth” and called on Muslims to unite and wage jihad to achieve that end. Fazlullah, one of the most extreme commanders in a group filled with extremists, also said that attempts made by Pakistan’s military intelligence service to break up the TTP have largely failed and his group has reorganized following a tumultuous period.

Fazlullah made the statements in a video released yesterday by Umar Media, the propaganda arm of the TTP. Umar Media also provided an English language transcript of Fazlullah’s speech. He outlined the group’s primary goal in his opening statement.

“The aim of Tehreek e Taliban Pakistan [TTP] is to implement the law of Allah on the Earth of Allah.

And this will be the result of our Jihad.

For Islamic ideology, we have to make sacrifices.

By the grace of Allah, those who believe that implementation and uprising of Shariah their actual goal and absolute ambition, know that the implementation of this Shariah is impossible without practicing Jihad and Jihad is impossible without unity,” Fazlullah said.

Throughout the speech, Fazlullah quoted the Koran to provide religious justification for the TTP’s war against the Pakistani military and government and said that it is the obligation of clerics to rally Muslims to the cause.

“It is your responsibility to wake up the public, make them zealous for Islam and humanity, tell them their level and inform them about the system provided by the Allah almighty,” Falzullah implored.

Later in the speech, he outlined the obligation and responsibility of all Muslims to wage “defensive jihad.”

“In Islam there is concept of Jihad,” he noted. “At this time Jihad ud Daf’ (defensive jihad) is being conducted which is obligatory to each and every Muslim. It is written in Islamic books that when Jihad becomes Fardh Ayen i.e. obligatory for each Muslim no one has to take permission from any one, jihad becomes obligatory for each and every men and women and every Muslim becomes a fighter and a Murabit (Defender of borders). Everyone has to sacrifice themselves for protecting Islam.”

Fazlullah also said that “the cracks which were developed by ISI,” or the Inter-Services Intelligence Directorate – Pakistan’s military intelligence branch – “in this Tehreek and organization have almost uprooted.”

“[T]he step to make the Tehreek well organized, has been completed,” he continued.

Afghan intelligence confirms top al Qaeda leader killed in raid


crew-2231211It’s always great to read postings from the Long War Journal.

 

Bill Roggio and is team never fails to bring us uplifting news that the U.S. Media hides from us.

Of course, there will be music for Qari Saifullah Akhtar, funeral. (Source)

Akhtar is one of the main plotters of the September 2008 suicide attack on the Marriott hotel in Islamabad. (Source)

Akhtar acted in concert with Qari Zafar, the leader of the al Qaeda and Taliban-linked Fedayeen-i-Islam.

The US killed Zafar in an airstrike in Feb. 2010 in the town of Dargi Mandi near Miramshah in North Waziristan, a known haven for al Qaeda.

 

The Long War Journal

 

The National Directorate of Security, Afghanistan’s intelligence service, confirmed that its forces killed Qari Saifullah Akhtar, a top Pakistan al Qaeda leader, during a raid last month in the southern province of Ghazni. Akhtar’s involvement with jihad spanned four decades, and he has been directly linked to Osama bin Laden and Pakistan’s Inter-Serves Intelligence Directorate.

The NDS said it killed Akhtar and one of his “comrades,” during a raid in the district of Nawa in Ghazni on Jan. 9.

It is unclear why the NDS took more than five weeks to confirm Akhtar’s death.

z_1922909bAkhtar, operating under the orders of al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri, managed “a terrorist hub in the Bagram and Reshkhor regions of Kabul province,” according to the NDS.

Just one day after the raid, the Pakistani press, based on statements from jihadists in the region, reported that Akhtar was killed on Jan. 9. (Source)

However,  press reports indicated that he was killed in Paktika’s Bermal district.

US military fails to ‘decimate’ Islamic State leadership despite thousands of airstrikes

isis-leaflet-1

Obama is such a moron if he were confronted by a rattle snake in the  desert, he would chop off its tail rather than it’s head. 

Dropping such fliers on a playground is one thing. Sparing third graders is admirable.

 

But anyone who drives a truck full of stolen oil and helps ISIS generate some $450 million in annual revenue, deserves to die behind the wheel.

Every ISIS oil-truck driver so spared lives another day to steer another oil truck, deliver ISIS fighters to battle, or grab an AK-47 and shoot American troops or, even worse, innocent civilians.

The Long War Journal

 

The US killed three senior Islamic State commanders in separate airstrikes in the Iraqi-Syrian theater in late November, with a US military spokesman touting the strikes as “an example of how we’re able to decimate networks.”

image0013Colonel Steve Warren, the spokesman for Operation Inherent Resolve, the US mission in Iraq and Syria, announced the deaths of the three Islamic State leaders during a Pentagon briefing yesterday.

Among those killed was the Islamic State’s finance minister. The exact dates of death of the three Islamic State leaders was not disclosed; Warren only said all three were killed “in late November.”

 

The most prominent Islamic State leader who was killed was Abu Saleh, the Islamic State’s “financial minister” who was “one of the most senior and experienced members of ISIL’s [acronym for Islamic State] financial network,” Warren said.

In addition, Abu Saleh was “a legacy Al Qaeda member.” The Islamic State was part of al Qaeda’s network until early 2014, when Ayman al Zawahiri ejected the jihadist group due to a leadership and territorial dispute with the Al Nusrah Front, al Qaeda’s branch in Syria.

Image far right titled: “Being in the wrong place at the wrong time.”

Warren said that Abu Saleh was the third senior financial official killed by the US. “Killing him and his predecessors exhausts the knowledge and talent needed to coordinate funding within the organization,” Warren claimed.

But independent press reports indicate that the Islamic State has not experienced a drop-off in revenue despite the targeting of its leaders and the oil fields they control.

Also killed were Abu Maryam, an Islamic State “enforcer and senior leader of their extortion network,” and Abu Rahman al Tunisi, who Warren said “functioned as a sort of ISIL executive officer, coordinating the transfer of information, people and weapons.”

Warren claimed that Maryam’s death and the death of two other “senior” extortionists “is impairing ISIL’s ability to extort money from a civilian population.”

US military confirms it killed senior al Qaeda strategist Sanafi al Nasr in airstrike in Syria

crew-22312He and his jihad buddies will not be missed.

 

After all, Islamic Jihadists begin preparing their young in diapers to take their pace.

The Long War Journal

Sanafi al Nasr, sitting on the far left in the picture above, has been killed in a US airstrike.The US military confirmed that it killed Sanafi al Nasr, a senior al Qaeda strategist who was dispatched by the jihadist group years ago to Syria, in an airstrike in the war torn country on Oct. 15. Nasr’s death, and that of two other jihadists, was first reported by al Qaeda members late last week.

The US Department of Defense confirmed that Nasr was killed in “an airstrike in northwest Syria.” The US military described Nasr as “a Saudi national and the highest ranking leader of the network of veteran al Qaeda operatives sometimes called the ‘Khorasan Group.’”

“Al Nasr was a long-time jihadist experienced in funneling money and fighters for al Qaeda.

He moved funds from donors in the Gulf region into Iraq and then to al Qaeda leaders from Pakistan to Syria,” the press release announcing his death stated.

“He organized and maintained routes for new recruits to travel from Pakistan to Syria through Turkey in addition to helping al Qaeda’s external operations in the West.

Al Nasr previously worked for al Qaeda’s Iran-based facilitation network. In 2012 he took charge of al-Qaeda’s core finances before relocating to Syria in 2013.”

The US military claimed that Nasr “is the fifth senior Khorasan Group leader killed in the last four months.”

Among those senior al Qaeda leaders killed by the US in Syria killed is Muhsin al Fadhli, a Kuwaiti who served alongside Nasr in al Qaeda’s so-called “Khorasan Group.”

US drone strike kills mufti of Islamic State Khorasan Province

Another “Obvious screw up in the Rules of Engagement.
Not a problem, they don’t follow them why should we?

 

The Long War Journal

The US killed the Islamic State Khorasan Province’s mufti, or senior religious and legal scholar, in an airstrike in the eastern Afghan province of Nangarhar, where the global jihadist group is strongest in the country.

Jalaluddin, the mufti, was a disciple of a senior Taliban leader and al Qaeda facilitator who is a Specially Designated Global Terrorist.

He attended a madrassa in Pakistan that is listed by the US as a terrorist facility.

To be filed under: “Smoke um when you got um.”

Jalaluddin, left,  was killed on Oct. 13 in a US drone strike in the Nangarhar’s Mohmand Dara district, the Afghan Islamic Press reported yesterday.

The news agency is closely linked to the Taliban and jihadist groups operating in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and has accurately reported on deaths of senior figures in the past.

The Islamic State’s mufti was traveling in a vehicle “with his five men” when he was killed, Afghan Islamic Press reported.

The district of Mohmand Dara directly borders Pakistan.

The Islamic State Khorasan Province’s top leaders and much of its rank and file are largely made up of disaffected former members of the Movement of the Taliban in Pakistan as well as the Afghan Taliban.

Jalaluddin’s death has not been officially announced by the Islamic State.

The Nangarhar Governor’s Press Office and Islamic State supporters on social media sites have said that he was killed.

While the Islamic State has not had much success establishing itself in other Afghan provinces, it has made inroads into Nangarhar at the expense of the Taliban.

Over the past year, the group has battled with the Taliban for control over the province, and is said to have assassinated the Taliban’s shadow governor for Nangarhar.

The Islamic State is known to have a strong presence in nine of Nangarhar’s 22 districts. The district of Achin is said to be controlled by the Islamic State. According to The New York Times, the jihadist group has an estimated 4,200 fighters in Nangarhar.
