Abdul Rahim #Muslim_Dost, a fomer detaine of the US-run Guantanamo Prison& alleged founding member of the #ISKP, #surrendered to the #Taliban in Nangarhar.
He publicly disassociated himself from ISKP, for the killing of innocent people by the group n 2015. pajhwok.com/ps/2022/03/04/…
In Oct. 2015, #Muslimdost confirmed that he had pledged allegiance to IS leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi& was loyal to him, but condemn the activities of #ISKP in AFG under leadership of Hafiz Saeed.
Below are two reports on the topic:
fb.watch/bxPGsin8_l/ www-alaraby-co-uk.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/www.alarab…
“I was in Terah area of Khyber Agency when I announced allegiance to the Khilafat (IS). Groups of people were joining us and I would convince them, but we were unaware that illiterate people like Hafiz Saaed Khan are damaging the holy name.”
#Taliban statement on surrender of #Muslimdost:
"Abdul Rahim Muslimdost, the head of #ISKP, surrendered to #Nangarhar's intelligence department and expressed remorse for his past actions.
Dr. Bashir, chief of Nangarhar intellegence, welcomed Muslimdost ...
...and said that the #ISKP was not a real threat, rather, it was exaggerated. He hoped that the remaining/other members of the ISKP will also surrender soon."

Taliban in their statement, somehow, called Muslimdost as the head of Daesh in Khurasan (ISKP), which is not true.

Today is the graduation ceremony of the hundreds of #AFG #police, from the police academy in #Kabul.
Pro-TB sources told me that it is more likely that the acting minister of interior, Khalifa #Sirajuddin_Haqqani, will #appear_in_public and allow media to film him.
And here is unseen Sirajuddin Haqqani, the head of #Haqqani Network, Deputy Leader of the Taliban and current acting Interior Minister... ImageImage
Is it still valid?
"The Rewards For Justice Program, United States Department of State, is offering a reward of up to $10 million for information leading directly to the arrest of Sirajuddin Haqqani."
