Taliban Involved in Fall of ISIS in Nangarhar

04 Dec 2019 Middle East Press

KABUL (MEP) – The US special envoy for peace in Afghanistan says the Taliban played an important role in the fall of ISIS, known as Daesh, in eastern Nangarhar province. Zalmay Khalilzad has recently said that the Taliban played a role alongside Afghan and foreign security forces in defeating ISIS – Khorasan Branch – in Nangarhar province. Khalilzad wrote in a post on Twitter that the Khorasan branch of ISIL in Afghanistan has not been completely fallen, but has been badly defeated in Nangarhar province. He endorsed US President Donald Trump’s remarks that major progress was made against ISIL-Khorasan in Afghanistan. “The recent campaign in Nangarhar is one example. Effective operations by US/Coalition & Afghan security forces, as well as the Taliban, led to ISIS-K losing territory & fighters. Hundreds surrendered. ISIS-K hasn’t been eliminated but this is real progress.” US envoy for peace in Afghanistan said. The US special envoy for peace in Afghanistan says the Afghan security agencies have insisted on the complete destruction of ISIS-K in the northeastern provinces in particular, Nangarhar. But Afghan security agencies have not remembered the Taliban, in the other hand, it is reported that more than 1,000 ISIS members have surrendered to security forces in recent days. Progress for defeat of ISIS in Nangarhar province comes when there are credible reports of ISIL activity in the northern provinces of the country, especially in Sar-e Pol.
