Spokesperson of General Directorate of Intelligence (GDI) Khalil Hamraz in a press conference said that they have arrested 600 ISIS-K affiliates and have killed 33 more in the past three months.

This was his first press conference that was held in Kabul on Wednesday, November 10.

Khalil Hamraz claimed that the overall security situation has been better and is getting better day by day.

“82 suspects of kidnapping arrested, 12 hostages released, 76 people accused of fabricating documents arrested in the past three months” added Hamraz.

In the meantime, the spokesperson of the Taliban Zabiullah Mujahid who also attended the press conference said that the ISIS-K affiliates in Afghanistan are not the real ISIS fighters from Iraq and Syria.

Like always, Mujahid again underestimated the ISIS-K fighters in Afghanistan and claimed that this is a small group that is impressed by the ideology of ISIS.

Mujahid said that the Air Force of Afghanistan has been reactivated and asked the Afghan pilots to return to the country and join the forces.

“Invitations for most of the Afghan pilots have been extended and they were asked to join Afghan Air Force.” Said Mujahid.

This comes as US has lately flown out nearly 200 Afghan pilots and military personnel from Tajikistan to that country.
