The Taliban Security forces in the Northern Province of Afghanistan, Balkh, killed six Daesh key fighters in a special operation late Monday.

Mohammad Asif Waziri, a spokesperson for Balkh provincial police, confirmed that in a special raid by the Taliban security forces, six key fighters of Islamic State Khorasan were killed in Nahr-e-Shahi District of Balkh province on late Monday.

The operation occurred after one of the perpetrators was arrested on Sunday by the Taliban intelligence Department which was involved in several deadly attacks in the Balkh province, including the assassination of Mohammad Dawood Muzamal, governor of the province.

The accused person allegedly said that he had contributed blast in the office of the Balkh governor, Tebyan Cultural Center and several others.

Earlier in March, the Taliban governor of Balkh, Mohammad Dawood Muzmal, was killed in the blast with two of his aide. Two days after the Balkh governor blast, a journalists’ gathering was targeted in Tebyan Cultural Center, leaving at least three people dead and more than 30 others injured.

Daesh, or the group also known as Islamic State-Khorasan, claimed responsibility for both incidents.

Since the Taliban regained power in Afghanistan, Daesh militants have been considered the main security challenges for the de facto government amid an economic and humanitarian crisis.
