Taliban Ranger Vehicle Hits and Kills Prominent Tribal Elder in Kunduz Province
Local sources in Kunduz province have reported a tragic incident where a member of the Taliban, driving a Ranger vehicle, struck and killed a well-known tribal elder. The incident occurred three days ago in the village of “Haji Hussain” in the Ali-Abad district, as confirmed by sources on Sunday, December 3, to the Hasht-e Subh Daily.
According to eyewitnesses, the Taliban member involved in the accident lacked adequate driving skills and had recently joined the militant group. The eyewitnesses recounted the horrifying scene, with one stating, “The Taliban Ranger dragged the lifeless body of the prominent tribal elder for more than 15 meters along the road.”
The tribal elder, identified as Pahlawan Salehuddin Aymaq, was widely respected in the community.
As of now, it remains unclear whether the individual responsible for the incident has been detained by the Taliban. The Taliban group has not issued any comments or statements regarding the matter.
This unfortunate event highlights a concerning trend of reckless driving by Taliban members, resulting in traffic accidents, and, in some instances, causing harm to civilians. The incident serves as a stark reminder of the potential dangers associated with inexperienced individuals handling vehicles within the group.
