Security forces kill 12 ISIS fighters in Kunar

Salaam Times

KUNAR -- Afghan forces killed at least 12 members of the "Islamic State of Iraq and Syria" (ISIS) in Kunar Province on Sunday (January 7), according to a Facebook statement by the 201st Silab Corps of the Afghan National Army (ANA).

Fighting broke out after ISIS fighters attacked members of an anti-ISIS popular uprising and of the Afghan Local Police in Sawkai District.

The ANA did not disclose casualties for Afghan forces.

The latest incident comes after a senior leader of Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) was killed by his own explosives in Kunar Province last year on December 27.
