Similar claim was posted by hundred of handles

Fact-Check :

Upon trying to look for this claim on Al Jazeera’s website, we could not find any such news there.

This claim was then addressed by the Taliban themselves when they themselves issued a statement that this is false news. Mullah Baradar himself released a statement calling this claim false.

Therefore, this claim is fake.
