SHAFAQNA - Afghan intelligence reported on Saturday that the chief of Daesh (Islamic State)’s self-styled Khorasan region (Pakistan, Afghanistan and some adjoining regions), Hafiz Saeed Khan Orakzai, was killed in a US drone strike in Afghanistan’s Nangarhar province.
“Based on NDS (National Directorate of Security) intelligence, Hafiz Saeed, the leader of IS in so called Khorasan state was killed in an air strike in Achin, Nangarhar province,” the NDS said in a statement posed online. There is no word from Daesh on Saeed’s killing.
Sayeed is the second top Daesh leader who has been killed in a drone strike in recent days.
The drone strike comes days after former Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) spokesperson Shahidullah Shahid was killed in a US drone strike in Nangarhar province.
