85 ISIS AFFILIATED KILLED IN AFGHANISTAN BY U.S DRONE
According to National Directorate for Security (NDS), the drones targeted a suspected gathering of militants and that all slain people were Pakistani belonging to the so-called “Hafiz Saeed group”.
In a statement, the NDS said that that 60 suspected ISIS fighters and their commander Jalil Worakzai were killed in the first strike conducted in the district’s Abdul Khil locality Sunday. Later, another strike killed 25 suspected ISIS fighters in Shodel locality, which also destroyed three pick-up vehicles.
The attacks came after 300 fighters allied to the so-called Islamic State attacked checkpoints in Nangarhar and allegedly launched its first attack on Afghan security forces early Sunday killing four policemen and wounded eight others.
ISIS emerged out of the blue in Afghanistan in 2014. On Friday 09/25/2015, the United Nations in its report claimed that up to 70 ISIS fighters arrived in Afghanistan from Iraq and Syria to establish a foothold in the country.
“The newly-emerged extremist group is recruiting members in 25 out of 34 provinces of Afghanistan,” the UN report said.
Also, the Afghan Taliban deny that they have any agreement with ISIS allowing them to start an insurgency in Afghanistan and see the presence of ISIS as part of an alleged Kabul-backed international conspiracy against their own militant movement.
Also on Sunday a leading anti-Taliban commander Haji Faizullah was killed alongside another man when a young man on a bicycle targeted him in a market in Shrin Tagab district, Faryab province,
Afghanistan is sliding very fast to a total failing state where everybody is fighting everybody and Muslims are killing Muslims in the name of Global Jihad. American intervention was, eventually, in wain.
