"A special unit of the #Nangargar's Intelligence Department conducted a #special_operation on a hideout of armed robbers/kidnappers (#ISKP) in Maqam Khan area of #Behsud district, in which the head of the group named Shaheen was killed& 3 members of the group arrested."
Meanwhile, Nangarhar Spinghar News quoted eye witnesses saying that "on Saturday morning a clash broke out between the Taliban& #ISKP (on the outskirts of Jalalabad). According to local residents, 2 ISKP militants were killed, 1 wounded& 2 arrested. TB also sustained casualties." Image
#Taliban statement:
"Dr. Bashir, the provincial director of intelligence in #Nangarhar, said that 80 #ISKP members from 10 districts of the province had #surrendered, with conditional bail of local tribal elders, to the IEA and they were apardoned."
While the #Taliban as a government downplaying the strength& risk of #ISKP in #Afghanistan, the surrender of the 80 Daesh operatives in Nangarhar today& over 100 more in the previous months, prove otherwise.
Nangarhar is the birthplace& stronghold of ISKP.

Pro-Taliban accounts:
"Last night, #Taliban attacked four #ISKP hideouts in #Kandahar City.
The Taliban attacks on ISKP hideouts sparked clashes between the two sides, in Haji Arab & Al-Makkah Plaza in PD15, Deh Khwaja Manda in PD3 & Breshna Kot area in PD9 of Kandahar City."
A local journalist:
"Initial info from the TB operation against #ISKP in #Kandahar City shows that 4 ISKP fighters& 2 civilians were killed& about 10 other ISKP members were captured alive.
The operation is currently underway in PD4, near Saydal Hospital."
#Taliban didn't comment on operation against ISKP in Kandahar yet.
The photos of the dead bodies of alleged ISKP members, killed by the TB in Kandahar, are horrific& I am not going to publish it here.
In mid-October, ISKP claimed a deadly attack against a Shia mosque in Kandahar.
