KABUL: At least 13 loyalists of the ISIS terrorist group were killed and seven others wounded during the clearance operations in eastern Nangarhar province.

The operations were conducted in Achin and Deh Bala districts of Nangarhar province with the support of the Air Force and Artillery units, Khaama Press reported the Ministry of Defence as saying.

The operations were conducted in the aftermath of an attack by ISIS loyalists on police headquarters of Haska Mina, which killed the district police chief along with five other cops.

The Afghan forces have stepped up counter-terrorism operations targeting the ISIS loyalists as the terror group is trying to expand its foothold in the country.

In the meantime, the Afghanistan National Security Council (NSC) approved in principle the strategy to fight the ISIS terrorist group, reports Khaama Press.

The NSC has instructed relevant institutions to take all necessary actions to destroy the terror group and prevent terrorist activities in the country.
