Afghan Forces Kill 14 ISIS Terrorists

Saturday 2 January 2016
Afghan Forces Kill 14 ISIS Terrorists
Alwaght- At least 14 militants belonging to the ISIS Takfiri terrorist group have been killed in airstrikes carried out by Afghan Air Force in eastern Nangarhar province.
In a Friday statement, Afghanistan’s Ministry of Defense said the airstrikes targeted terrorists’ hideouts in the restive Achin district.
The statement noted that at least 12 ISIS terrorists were also injured and numerous weapons, ammunition and explosives were also destroyed in the raids.
The Afghan national security forces have stepped up counter-terrorism operations in the restive districts of Nangarhr province as the insurgency activities by ISIS fanatics have been rampant during the recent months.
Meanwhile, the Afghan Air Force has also doubled air raids against the terrorist groups with the arrival new combat aircraft which are expected to turn tide in favor of the Afghan security forces.
Elsewhere ISIS terrorists have been involved in “direct rivalry” with Taliban terrorists in several provinces across crisis-torn Afghanistan, a former special representative of the UN Secretary-General told RIA Novosti.
“During the last month or two, we have recorded it [the conflict between ISIS and Taliban] in the city of Herat [Herat province, western Afghanistan], Zabul province [south] and Nangarhar province,” said Nicholas Haysom, who once served as the UN Secretary-General’s deputy special representative in Afghanistan.
Haysom added that he is neither trying to “exaggerate” nor “underestimate” the threat the two terrorist groups are posing in the war-stricken country.
“Currently the threat is limited but it may grow eventually,” the ex-UN official said, adding that Taliban and ISIS are “in direct rivalry.”
He added that for Islamic State militants, the most important thing is to pledge allegiance to their leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, while the Taliban militants are currently devoted to their new leader, Akhtar Mohammad Mansoor.
