Hasib is believed to have been behind March’s attack on a military hospital in Kabul, killing at least 50 people, many of them doctors and patients. Patients were systematically shot and stabbed to death in their beds. Sediq Sediqi, a spokesman for the Afghan president, congratulated the military for killing Hasib.Two US army rangers also died in the raid, near an underground system of tunnels believed to be used by IS. Abdul Hasib was appointed as the leader of IS in Afghanistan last year after his predecessor was killed in a US drone strike. Hasib was the leader of a local affiliate of the Islamic State, known as Islamic State Khorasan or ISIS-K.
