Afghanistan — Senior Taliban Leader Killed In Uruzgan

A suc­cess­ful Afghan Nation­al Secu­ri­ty Force and Spe­cial Oper­a­tions Task Group oper­a­tion against insur­gents in Cen­tral Uruz­gan was con­duct­ed on Sat­ur­day, 6 Novem­ber result­ing in one dis­trict-lev­el Tal­iban leader being killed.

Mul­lah Moham­madul­lah and anoth­er insur­gent were killed when they fired at the com­bined force while flee­ing the Shahid‑e Hasas area, near Deh Rawud. The event occurred dur­ing a com­bined dis­rup­tion oper­a­tion against an impro­vised explo­sive device and weapons dis­tri­b­u­tion ring. 

Mul­lah Moham­madul­lah oper­at­ed at the dis­trict lev­el and was known to have resourced, planned and coor­di­nat­ed oper­a­tions against the Inter­na­tion­al Secu­ri­ty Assis­tance Force and the Afghan Nation­al Secu­ri­ty Force in the region, as well as being a known dis­trib­u­tor of weapons and mon­ey for the insurgents.

The out­come of this com­bined oper­a­tion is like­ly to have an impact on the abil­i­ty of insur­gent net­works to coor­di­nate oper­a­tions in cen­tral Uruz­gan province as well as remov­ing a key link to the senior Tal­iban leadership.
