Taliban EXECUTE Brother Of One Of The Afghan Resistance Fighters

The UN envoy for Afghanistan Deborah Lyons said there had been ‘credible allegations’ of targeted killings ‘despite the many statements granting general amnesties’.

Taliban militants have executed the brother of one of the Afghan resistance fighters’ leaders and have refused to let relatives bury him, his nephew said on Friday.

The man was the brother of Amrullah Saleh, the former Afghan vice president who became one of the leaders of anti-Taliban opposition forces in the Panjshir valley.

The news that Saleh’s brother Rohullah Azizi was killed came days after Taliban forces took control of the provincial centre of Panjshir, the last province holding out against them after the took control of the rest of Afghanistan last month.

‘They executed my uncle,’ Ebadullah Saleh told Reuters in a text. ‘They killed him yesterday and would not let us bury him. They kept saying his body should rot.’

The Urdu language account of the Taliban information service Alemarah said that ‘according to reports’ Rohullah Saleh was killed during fighting in Panjshir.
