Haqqani Network leader has been released from an Afghan prison.

According to the details received by The Balochistan Post, One of the main leaders of Haqqani Network fraction of Taliban Anas Haqqani among eight others has been released by the Afghan Intelligence agency from prison.

Anas Haqqani is the youngest son of the founder of Haqqani Network Jalaluddin Haqqani and younger brother of the current leader of Haqqani Network Sirajuddin Haqqani.

It is pertinent to mention, Anas Haqqani was arrested by the Afghan intelligence agency on 14 October 2014 from Afghanistan’s Khost province.

According to the TBP Sources, The release of Taliban Commander is the result of dialogues between the Taliban and America in UAE. It is believed, the recent release is part of the deal of prisoner exchange.

The Haqqanis’ rise within the Afghan Taliban has been seen as evidence of the Pakistani military’s continued influence within the insurgency next door. American officials have long considered Jalaluddin and Sirajuddin Haqqani to be among the closest proxies for Pakistan’s military spy agency, Inter-Services Intelligence, known as the ISI.
