The Afghan intelligence service said late Saturday it had killed a high ranking Daesh operative in an operation in eastern Afghanistan. A statement released by the National Directorate of Security (NDS) said Assadullah Orakzai was an intelligence leader for Daesh and had been killed by special forces near Jalalabad. Orakzai was suspected of being involved in several deadly attacks against both military and civilian targets in Afghanistan, the NDS said. Daesh in Afghanistan has claimed responsibility for countless attacks in the country over the past few years.  Just in March, a lone Daesh attacker killed at least 25 people at a Sikh temple in Kabul.  While worshippers were performing rituals, a man armed with hand grenades and wearing a suicide vest stormed the temple complex in a crowded part of the city. More than 200 people were inside when the siege began. It took security officials nearly seven hours to kill the assailant, who was wearing a military uniform.
