The Haqqani Network

The US added Qari Zakir to the list of global terrorists. He serves as head of the Haqqani Network’s suicide operations in Afghanistan and the operational commander in Kabul, Takhar, Kunduz, and Baghlan provinces, and runs the network’s training program. The United Nations added the Haqqani Network to its sanctions list and added Qari Zakir to its terrorist list.
