Maulvi Faqir Muhammad DEAD????

Unconfirmed but great news if it is true.

xinhuanet

Three top leaders of Pakistani Taliban were among 30 militants killed by the security forces in a tribal region, local TV channels reported on Friday.

Maulvi Faqir Muhammad, the deputy chief of Tehrik Taliban Pakistan (TTP), was among those killed in Mohmand tribal agency, the private Geo News reported.

Maulvi Faqir was based in Bajaur tribal area and is believed to have moved to Mohmand agency after the security forces took control of Bajaur near the Afghan border.

There is no official confirmation of the report and no reaction from TTP

Some will ask whats the big deal...Faqir has been known to shelter Ayman Zawahiri....who might be feeling a tad exposed about now....his hidey hole gone....and if this report is true his regional protector..... is dead.

Some background... Faqir's Wiki page
