The 209th Shaheen Corps in the North, citing credible sources, reported that Mullah Hebatullah and his two deputies, Sirajuddin Haqqani and Mullah Yaqoob visited the port city of Pakistan.
Sirajuddin Haqqani is the deputy of Mullah Hebatullah as well as the leader of the notorious Haqqani terrorist network while Mullah Yaqoob, the son of the former Taliban leader Mullah Mohammad, is operating as the military commission chief of the group.
The source further added that the top Taliban leaders have reportedly visited Karachi city on invitation of the Pakistani officials.
The sources also claim that the Taliban leaders have apparently visited the Karachi city to hatch plans for their future attacks as the group has recently launched its spring offensive.
This comes as the Afghan and US officials have long been insisting that the leadership councils of the Taliban and the notorious Haqqani terrorist network are based in Pakistan from where they plan and coordinate deadly attacks in Afghanistan.
However, the Pakistani officials reject the claims and emphasize that the US is attempting to divert attention from its failures in Afghanistan by criticizing Islamabad.
