Kabul: Top Taliban leader Mullah Hibbatullah Akhunzada has been killed. Akhunzada was killed in a suicide bombing in Pakistan last year.
Amir al-Mu’minin Sheikh, a senior Taliban leader, was quoted in CNN as saying that Hibatullah Akhunzada had been killed in a suicide bombing by Pakistani forces. News18 reported. Akhunzada became Taliban leader after Mullah Akhtar Mansour was killed in a drone strike in 2016. Since Akhunzada never appeared in public, there were many rumors. In addition, the failure to address the public and participate in government formation discussions led to the conclusion that Akhunzada was not alive. This was a big discussion on social media.
