Afghan national security forces have rebuffed a coordinated attack by the affiliates of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), which also goes by its Arabic name Daesh, on security posts in eastern Nangarhar province, Khaama Press reported.
Nangarhar police spokesperson says a group of armed militants attacked security posts in Pandola and Girdi areas of Achin District yesterday.
Colonel Hazrat Hussain Mashriqiwal writes in a statement released to media this morning that police gave befitting response to the militants and they were pushed back.
“One armed opponent was killed and two others wounded in the retaliatory attack,” Col. Mashriqiwal has said in the press release.
There were no casualties to police and civilians, the statement added.
Although, Col. Mashriqiwal has not specified what group the militants belonged to but Achin District is a stronghold Daesh in Nangarhar.
