Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi welcomed the three-day Eid ceasefire in Afghanistan, calling it "a major breakthrough," and said the decision to announce a truce in Afghanistan was not an easy decision and that Islamabad played a key role in the announcement.
“It’s a major success, I am very satisfied. There are contributions in the process (ceasefire) from various friends, there has been a key role in this by Pakistan about the decision for a ceasefire in Afghanistan. This was not an easy decision,” said Qureshi during a presser in Islamabad.
The Afghan intelligence agency---the National Directorate of Security (NDS)--on Saturday said that it had killed Assadullah Orakzai, the head of intelligence for the Khorasan branch of Daesh.
The NDS told TOLOnews that the Daesh commander was killed during an operation near Jalalabad city, the center of Nangarhar province.
