Taliban Kills Six ISIL Members In Afghanistan

Taliban forces have killed six members of the ISIL armed group (ISIS) in Afghanistan’s Balkh province, a Taliban spokesman said on Tuesday.

According to Mohammad Asif Waziri, a spokesman for the police chief in Balkh, the operation targeted an ISIL hideout in Nahri Shahi district.

Six members of the armed group were killed, he added.

The raid comes as the Taliban rulers crack down on the ISIL group which has carried out several deadly attacks in recent months.

This included killing Balkh Governor Mohammad Dawood Muzammil last month.

Muzammil was known for his resistance to ISIL in the area.

The ISIL group has also claimed other recent attacks including a bombing near a checkpoint at the city’s military airport.
