The mastermind of Taliban “terrorist attacks” in Kabul’s Qarabagh district has been arrested by security forces, the Ministry of Defense (MoD) said on Monday.
Fawad Aman, deputy spokesperson for the MoD, said that the senior Taliban member was arrested last night and goes by the name “Baryali.”
Aman said that Baryali was responsible for Taliban’s “terrorist and destructive attacks” in the district.
The 111th Division of the Afghan Army made the arrest in the village of Bagh-e Alam.
Aman said that Baryali’s brother, Jamil, is the Taliban-designated district governor for Qarabagh district.
