Gunmen assassinate two Taliban members in Kapisa Province

At least two Taliban members were shot dead in two separate incidents by unknown gunmen in Hesse Duwom-e-Kohistan district of the northeastern Kapisa province, local sources confirmed to Kabul Now.

Unknown gunmen shot and killed the driver of Taliban’s chief prosecutor for Kapisa province late on Tuesday, December 27, in Regi Rawan village of Hesse Dwuom-e-Kohistan district, local sources said.

The driver’s wife was wounded in the attack, the sources added.

Moreover, unknown armed men opened fire on a convoy of Taliban fighters on Wednesday, December 28, around noon in Pul-e-Murad Khwajah village of the same district.

One Taliban force was killed and one other was wounded as a result, a source confirmed.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attacks.

Located in the northeastern part of Afghanistan, Kapisa has witnessed some deadly attacks in recent months against the ruling Taliban.

The anti-Taliban militia known as the National Resistance Front (NRF) has an active presence in the province and carried out a mortal attack on the Taliban fighters on Thursday, December 08, in Hess-e-awal Kohistan district of the province.

The militia was shortly formed after the Taliban returned to power forcefully in August 2021 and is led by Ahmad Masoud, son of the Jihadi commander Ahmad Shah Masoud.
