July 22, 2017 | Entertainment

The son of Taliban leader Mullah Haibatullah Akhundzada died on July 20 carrying out a suicide attack in the embattled Helmand province in southern Afghanistan, a Taliban spokesman said on July 22.

A government official said authorities were investigating the incident and could not confirm that Haibatullah’s son had been killed.

Government media and information center director Sediq Sediqi disputed the claim on Twitter. He tweeted: “They lied, it is part of their propaganda, Taliban’s families & leaders are having luxuries life in Pakistan & Qatar”

Abdur Rahman, 23, also known as Hafiz Khalid, died driving a vehicle filled with explosives into a large base of Afghan security forces in Gereshk district on the morning of July 20, Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid told dpa.

Taliban fighters drove three captured Humvee vehicles into checkpoints during heavy fighting around Gereshk on the same day.

Mullah Haibatullah became the leader of the Taliban after his predecessor, Mullah Akhtar Mohammad Mansour died in a U.S. drone strike in Pakistan in May, 2016.

A government official said authorities are investigating the incident and cannot confirm that Haibatullah’s son had been killed.

The Taliban already control about 80 percent of Helmand province, where thousands of hectares of poppy plants grow, earning the Taliban hundreds of millions of dollars from opium and heroin production.
