Afghan official: ISIS moves to seize Osama bin Laden's hideout

Recommended Posts

ISIS fighters captured some territory around Tora Bora, the former stronghold of Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan's eastern Nangarhar province, officials said Wednesday.

The push and capture of the giant cave complex that once housed the late al-Qaeda chief would be a major scoop for ISIS in its increasingly deadly rivalry with the Afghan Taliban.

The caves had until now been under Taliban control.

Attahullah Khogyani, a spokesman in Nangarhar, said IS attacks in the mountain range began late on Tuesday night.

Clashes continued into the day, with ISIS militants battling the Taliban and some local villagers in the area.

By Wednesday, ISIS had managed to seize some territory around Tora Bora—but not the bin Laden hideout itself, Khogyani said, adding that there were unspecified casualties on both sides.

There has been no comment from ISIS or the Taliban so far.

Impenetrable and very difficult to locate or attack with conventional warfare techniques , will buy them a decade of safe harbor for worldwide terror attacks.

We best keep them from getting it.
