RC N Watch: USA erklären Kommandeur des Haqqani-Netzwerks für Nordafghanistan zum „globalen Terroristen“

Die Bedeutung dieser Nachricht geht zwar weit über den Norden Afghanistans hinaus, ist aber auch für das Gebiet des Regionalkommandos Nord interessant:

The Secretary of State has designated Haqqani Network chief of suicide operations Qari Zakir (also known as Abdul Rauf) as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist under Executive Order (E.O.) 13224, which targets terrorists and those providing support to terrorists or acts of terrorism.
(…)
Qari Zakir is the chief of suicide operations for the Haqqani Network and the operational commander in Kabul, Takhar, Kunduz, and Baghlan Provinces, Afghanistan. Zakir is responsible for the Haqqani Network’s training program, which includes instruction in small arms, heavy weapons, and basic improvised explosive device (IED) construction.

heißt es in einer Erklärung des US-Außenministeriums.

Eine Übersicht über das Vorgehen der USA gegen das Haqqani-Netzwerk gibt es beim Long War Journal.
