The Special Forces of the Afghan Intelligence (National Directorate of Security) conducted an operation in eastern Nangarhar province of Afghanistan killing at least 11 ISIS militants.

“In an Afghan special forces raid in Chapahar district, 11 ISIS-K fighters were killed and numerous weapons were destroyed,” the informed military sources said Monday.

In the meantime, the provincial government media office in a statement said the NDS Special Forces targeted ISIS militants in Aghez and Daudzai areas of Chaparhar district.

The statement further added that the NDS Special Forces killed ISIS military commission chief Dr. Bilal and another ISIS commander Najib alias Abu Bakar.

In addition, the NDS Special Forces destroyed an ISIS compound, night vision goggle, 9 Ak-47 assault rifles, 50 Ak-47 magazines, hand grenades, radio communication sets, and other military kits and explosives.

This comes as the security situation in some remote parts of Nangarhar has deteriorated during the recent years. Both Taliban and ISIS militants are active in some remote districts of the province and often conduct terrorist related activities.
