In October 2014, 6 Taliban fighters defected and gave bayah to Abu-Bakr-al-Baghdadi. Yesterday an audio with transcript in several languages surfaced on Twitter from Baghdadi entitled, ““March Forth Whether Light or Heavy” in Arabic urging followers to migrate and engage in jihad. Baghdadi was alleged to have been injured in an airstrike by US led Coalition forces in April.
A video released in January 2015 showed other Taliban militants had joined Wilyat Khorasan and 10 names were listed. The video also showed a Pakistani soldier being beheaded by sword. He was named as Mandhur from the Mirdan area of Pakistan and his capture was in Orkaizi (Daburi) during a battle.
