Mullah Dadullah Lang killed in security operation

KABUL, Afghanistan – As reported earlier today by the Government of Afghanistan, Mullah Dadullah Lang left his sanctuary into Southern Afghanistan where he was killed in a US-led Coalition operation supported by ISAF. 

Mullah Dadullah Lang is reported to have been the military commander of the Taliban insurgents.  He has been responsible for the deaths of many Afghans through many means to include the suicide bombers he has trained in his sanctuary and subsequently deployed into Afghanistan. 

The US-led Coalition operation against Mullah Dadullah Lang was enabled by the Afghan National Security Forces and the Afghan people. Mullah Dadullah Lang will most certainly be replaced in time, but the insurgency has received a serious blow.
