Head of Daesh Terror Group Killed in Afghanistan

Afghan forces have allegedly killed the head of the Daesh terror group in Afghanistan, Abu Saad Erhabi, during a strike on its hideouts in Nangarhar Province.

Authorities confirmed on Sunday that Erhabi as well as 10 other members of the terrorist group were killed in a joint ground and air operation by Afghan and foreign forces Saturday night.

The forces also destroyed a large cash of heavy and light weapons and ammunition.

According to Afghan intelligence documents, Daesh is present in nine provinces, from Nangarhar and Kunar in the east to Jawzjan, Faryab, and Badakhshan in the north, and Ghor in the central west.

In November last year, former Afghan President Hamid Karzai said the United States was colluding with Daesh in Afghanistan and allowing the Takfiri group to flourish in the war-stricken country.

The Taliban’s five-year rule over at least three quarters of Afghanistan came to an end when the United States and its allies invaded the country on October 7, 2001 as part of Washington’s so-called war on terror, but, ever since, the group has been involved in widespread militancy, killing thousands of civilians as well as Afghan security forces and displacing tens of thousands of people across the country.
