Two members of the

Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terrorist group surrendered to Afghan

forces in eastern Nangarhar province of Afghanistan.

Provincial governor

Shah Mahmood Miakhel told reporters that the two ISIS members are originally

hailing from Punjab province of Pakistan.

Miakhel further added

that the two ISIS members surrendered to Afghan forces together with their

family members which include three women and nine children. 

He also added that the

two ISIS members surrendered to the Afghan forces one and half years after

joining ISIS ranks and conducting terrorist related activities in Achin

district.

This comes as numerous reports have emerged recently regarding the growing activities of Pakistani militants in Afghanistan.

At least 33 Pakistani

nationals who were fighting in the ranks of Taliban were killed in

South-eastern Ghazni province earlier this week.

The provincial

government and police headquarters issued separate statements on Tuesday confirming

that 42 militants including 33 Pakistanis were killed in latest operations

which were conducted in Andar district.

The statements further

added that the operations were conducted late on Monday night by Afghan and

U.S. forces.
