Thread on Afghan Taliban’s regulation of TTP: After now years of fighting ISKP remnants, IEA established such a MoU/agreement with the TTP, who have fought on behalf of the Afghan Taliban in parts of the country, or even integrated few 1000 of their fighters under IEA command. /1
Emissaries met with Wali Noor & other TTP leaders w/ the intention to regulate their presence. There was an agreement & in line with the U.S - TB deal, they set up a list of new rules, which they have to meet to stay in Afghanistan. Contrary to what is said above. They agreed. /2
Mangal Bagh’s Lashkare Islam & some of his men, who did not fight ISKP actively, were told if they did not sign the agreement they have to leave or face consequences. TTP ‘s central command & Wazir tribesmen assured IEA to fight those who did not abide by the agreement. /3
TTP has to disband & dissolve, arrest, fight those among their groups vowing to attack U.S or it’s allies. Pakistan & it’s forces will not be targeted with hit & run attacks along the border, but TTP won’t be prosecuted for returning to tribal belt to stage their insurgency. /4

Afghan interior ministry showcased a captured vehicle with explosives & other improvised devices in #Khost. While the ministry claims that it was intended as VBIED, could be in fact the IED supplier to a (ISKP?) cell in Kabul. /1
The reason to believe this assumption is not only the prepared phone, but the exact wiring used in the Kabul mosque blast, some of the IEDs were placed outside the mosque, the police defused them. /2
This is the phone and the exact same wiring after it was defused from one of the Mosque courtyards. I compared the wiring and preparation with others, there is greater variation. But this has to be likely from same IED maker. /3

Former TTP - media wing released a documentary, beside unveiling their relationship with the Afghan Taliban, it’s an acknowledgement & declarations of dissolving, joining the Afghan Taliban under their leadership. Confirming the assessments after the death of Hakimullah Mehsud.
This is major development, confirming my sources and reports from Paktika, Zabul & the battles against ISKP in Nangarhar & Kunar. Where former allies turned their guns on eachother. One fighting on behalf of the Afghan Taliban the others in the ranks of ISKP.
And yet once again TTP fooled @NDSAfghanistan , used their feeded intel & support provided to them returned it to the Afghan Taliban to take out NDS officials & spies in their ranks or heads in several provinces. Reducing CIA, NDS activity in south, east to a minimum.

HUGE: Mullah Nangyalai, who was killed in a U.S airstrike along with several civilians was in fact a U.S ally, leading a militia group splintered after a rift with the mainstream Taliban. The group enjoyed CIA-backing according to the @WSJ reporting. (1/n)
The CIA was convinced by the NDS to provide support for this program to help crush Taliban in western #Afghanistan with intel & military skills of the splinter faction led by Mullah Rasool. In return the faction will receive cash, weapons & amnesty. (2/n)
Taliban attacks & assassination devasted the group, loosing part of their leadership & made them flee some of their strongholds in #Herat, #Paktika & #Zabul. Several times they had to call for airstrikes, support from Afghan commandos to rescue them from Taliban onslaughts. (3/n)
