Kabul [Afghanistan]: A top al-Qaeda terrorist leader in the Indian Subcontinent (AQIS) was killed in a United States' led airstrike on April 23 in eastern Afghanistan, the US forces confirmed on Wednesday.
 
According to a report by the Resolute Support Mission, the operation against Hazrat Abbas, a senior AQIS and Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) commander was launched in Sherzad district of Nangarhar province.
 
"Abbas' integration and command of multiple organizations highlight the relationships between terrorist organisations in Afghanistan and the surrounding region, specifically how regional terrorist groups shelter and facilitate global threat networks," the report added citing TOLOnews.
 
Abbas, who used to control fighting forces in both Afghanistan and Pakistan, was responsible for conducting a number of terrorist attacks and abductions in both the countries.
