Security forces thwart attacks in Kabul, arrest 13 ISIS suspects

Salaam Times

KABUL -- The National Directorate of Security (NDS) says it has foiled a series of potential attacks planned by the "Islamic State of Iraq and Syria" (ISIS) in Kabul, according to a statement posted on Facebook Wednesday (January 3).

Intelligence operatives arrested a group of at least 13 terrorists, including several foreigners, in connection to the plots, the statement said.

The group was active in transferring suicide bombers and providing facilities to terrorists in the capital, the NDS statement added.

Officials did not provide further details regarding the foreigners.

The arrests come after ISIS claimed responsibility for a suicide attack in Kabul last week against a Shia community centre that killed 40 people.
