A group of seven militants including members of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terrorist group join peace process in eastern Kunar province of Afghanistan.

The 201st Silab Corps of the Afghan Military in the East said the militants renounced violence and joined peace process in Wanat Waigal district.

The source further added that the militants also handed over a PKM machine and six Ak-47 assault rifles to the Afghan forces.

Kunar is among the relatively volatile provinces in East of Afghanistan where the Taliban militants and other terrorists including ISIS members are actively operating in some of its districts.

The seven anti-government armed militants join peace process at a time when relentless groun operations and airstrikes are underway in Kunar and other parts of the country to suppress the terrorists.

In the meantime, the 201st Silab Corps said the door for peace and reconciliation will always remain open but emphasized that those opting to carry out destructive on recommendations of the foreigners will be eliminated.
