At least 53 ISIS Khurasan militants were killed during a multi-day operation of the Afghan Special Forces in eastern Nangarhar province.

According to informed military sources, the operations were conducted in the vicinity of Barsengani village in Khogyani district of Nangarhar.

The sources further added “A multi-day clearance operation by Afghan Special Forces targeting ISIS-K forces in Bar Sengani in Nangarhar has killed 53 fighters.”

The anti-government armed militants including ISIS loyalists have not commented regarding the operations so far.

Nangarhar is among the relatively calm provinces in East of Afghanistan but the Taliban and ISIS-K militants are active in some of its remote districts and often attempt to carry out terrorist related activities in this province.
