A militant of ISIS terrorist group hailing from Iran handed over himself to the Afghan forces in eastern Nangarhar province.

According to a statement released by Governor’s Office of Nangarhar, the 23-year-old ISIS fighter surrendered to Afghan Border Forces in Haska Mina district.

The militant confessed that Abdul Ahmad Irani, one of the leaders of ISIS terrorist group recruited him to ISIS ranks in Nangarhar.

However, he said he decided to abandon the group after realizing that the group’s activities are against all principles and regulations of Islam.

The ISIS militants are active in some remote districts of Nangarhar province where they often attempt to carry out terrorist related activities.

Meanwhile, the security forces regularly conduct clearance operations and airstrikes to prevent the terror group expand its foothold in Nangarhar and other parts of the country.
