Mullah Omar’s elder son has been handed a senior military position within the Afghan Taliban, the insurgent group said on Monday.

Mullah Mohammad Yaqoob, the elder son of the former Taliban supremo and the group’s founder, had previously refused to accept the leadership of the group’s chief Mullah Akhtar Mansoor.

The move is the first time the Taliban leadership has confirmed senior positions for members of Omar’s family and is likely to further strengthen Mansoor’s growing control over the insurgent group.

The announcement also comes just days after senior leader Mullah Abdul Qayyum Zakir had declared allegiance to Mullah Mansoor. Zakir, who once headed the Taliban’s military commission, was among several influential leaders who had earlier refused to accept Mansoor’s leadership.
