Intense clashes erupt between rival Taliban groups

Dozens of Taliban fighters were killed in a battle between the insurgents loyal to Taliban chief Mullah Mansoor and a splinter group. The breakaway faction is supported by “Islamic State” militants, officials say.

The splinter group is loyal to the veteran Taliban official Mohammad Rasool, Afghan authorities said Sunday.

The clashes in southern Afghanistan killed about 60 of Rasool’s followers and 20 militants associated with Mansoor during the weekend, according to the deputy police chief of Zabul province, Ghulam Jilani Farahi.

    A good news story with no downside, how refreshing.

    Fabulous. I hope they keep it up and I think they will since Muslims never get along with other Muslims.

    Any internet sites now open to accept donations of ammo and explosives for each side?

  • canminuteman

    We should supply both sides with ammo.

    When Muslims have no Jews or other unbelievers to persecute or even Muslims of other denominations they will inevitably turn on each other.

    One is not surprised. When the seventh century retards run out of children to rape, kill, and genitally mutilate or peaceful Christians to exterminate and fragrant young goats to sexually abuse they always turn on each other. This is the Religion of Peace, it is what they are, what they always have been and this is what they do. Simples.
    And it really is coming soon to a street near you if not already there, so either have fun and tool up and start collecting piano wire and identifying suitable lamp posts for the scum that you have elected to govern you and who going full bore enabling your ethnic cleansing – or just sit back and await the inevitable.
    You do actually have a choice but whether or not you have the balls to exercise that choice is a moot question.
