Deadly ISIS attacks foiled in Kabul city, 13 suspects arrested


The Afghan Intelligence, National Directorate of Security (NDS), says the Afghan intelligence operatives have managed to foil a series of deadly attacks plotted by the ISIS terrorist group in Kabul city.

According to a statement released by NDS, a group of at least thirteen insurgents have been arrested in connection to the attacks plots by the intelligence operatives.

The statement further added that the ISIS suspects were rounded up during an operation in Kabul city as they were busy plotting the future attacks.

NDS also added that a number of foreign insurgents are also among those arrested but did not give any further information regarding their identities.

The anti-government armed militant groups including the ISIS insurgents have not commented regarding the report so far.

This comes as dozens of people were killed or wounded in a coordianted suicide attack in Kabul city last week.

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terrorist group loyalists in Afghanistan claimed responsibility for the attack on a cultural center and news agency in Kabul.

The Ministry of Interior says a group of insurgents launched the attack on Thursday mornign leaving at least 41 dead and nearly 90 others wounded.

Thursday’s attack was one of the deadliest attacks carried out in Kabul city since the group has unleashed a series of deadly raids mainly on civilian targets in the country.
