14 IS men mysteriously killed in Nangarhar

14 IS men mysteriously killed in Nangarhar

Jul 01, 2017 - 15:56

JALALABAD (Pajhwok): Fourteen ISIS fighters have been killed by unidentified gunmen in the Khogyani district of eastern Nangarhar province, the Afghan military said on Saturday.

The Daesh loyalists were shot dead after being arrested a day earlier in Sor Dag area of the district, the 201 Selab Military Corps said in a statement.

However, Khogyani district chief Haji Zalmai said the 14 Daesh men had only been arrested, not killed, by their former Taliban colleagues over joining the Islamic State.

He said the Taliban had shifted the arrested men from Khogyani district to neighboring Sherzad district and had not killed as yet.

The Selab Military Corps also said two Daesh militants were injured during the ongoing special operation in Nangarhar.

The Taliban and Daesh have so far not commented about the killing of 14 fighters. The two groups have previously clashed many times in various districts of Nangarhar, with both the sides suffering casualties.
