[The CIA/Mi6 is behind all of this “Taliban split” news, including the
fake negotiations and the fake replacement for Mullah Omar. Most of the
key Taliban leaders involved in these charades, either the split, or the negotiations, have been CIA guinea pigs at Guantanamo, where they all received CIA ‘reconditioning.’
RAW involvement is incidental, other than its contribution to the CIA
programming (SEE: The Indian Art of Turning Jihadis Into Anti-Jihadis
and the War On Pakistan).
Once again, we see the anti-Taliban faction, Fidai Mahaz Mujahideen the remains of the loyalists who followed Dadullah (SEE: Mullah Dadullah Faction Exposes All the Fake Taliban Negotiations), fighting the new CIA Taliban under Mansour. This time, they not only fight in the south on their home turf, they hit the forces of coalition-supported, Gen. Dostum (SEE: Taliban kill 25 militiamen loyal to first vice president Gen. Dostum). The real Taliban loyalists are willing to fight a civil war within the Taliban in order to stop the US-created fake Taliban.
This will be another war without borders, fought by the first Islamic Caliphate.]

At least five were killed in gunbattles between rival Taliban factions in southern Afghanistan, a top official with the insurgent group said on Saturday. The clashes took place at a time when members of the Taliban meet in Pakistan to resolve a leadership crisis following the death of its former leader Mullah Mohammad Omar.
It was the first confirmed report of deadly Taliban infighting after an announcement last month that Mullah Omar had been dead for more than two years. Mullah Omar’s family objected after his former deputy Mullah Akhtar Mansoor was named the new Taliban leader and rivalries have spilled into violence, said Ahmad Rabbani, head of a committee trying to reunify the group.
Rabbani spoke from the Pakistani city of Quetta, where hundreds of Taliban loyalists are meeting in an effort to resolve the split.
The five deaths came after Taliban commander Mullah Mansoor Dadullah, loyal to Mullah Omar’s family, led hundreds of gunmen against Mansoor supporters in the southern Afghan province of Zabul, where the Taliban have long had a fighting presence, Rabbani said.
Rabbani said his committee hoped to reach a decision on who should lead the Taliban whose leaders have been based in Pakistan since their regime was overthrown in a US-led invasion in 2001 by Tuesday.
Meanwhile, at least 13 police were reported killed in separate attacks in eastern and southern Afghanistan.
Col Asadullah Ensafi, the deputy police chief in eastern Ghazni province, said at least eight officers were killed and 15 wounded in separate Taliban attacks on police checkpoints on Friday in Andar and Qarabagh districts.
Insurgents have intensified attacks on police checkpoints in recent months, as they typically have few men and are vulnerable. Casualties have soared.
Separately, Ensafi said an Afghan forces airstrike killed 16 insurgents and wounded 17 late on Friday in Ghazni’s capital.
The war with the Taliban has been particularly tough this year for Afghan forces, who are fighting without international combat troops backing them up after the US and NATO pulled out last year.
Separately, in the Chora district of southern Uruzgan province, five police officers were killed when their vehicle hit roadside bomb, said Abdul Qawi, the Chora police chief.
