Afghan troops have entered to face-to-face combat against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) group in the battlegrounds in Nangarhar province.
Ariananews reporter filmed how Daesh fighters killed against Afghan security forces in Deh Bala district of Nangarhar province.
Local officials in Nangarhar said all the armed opposition groups will kill as Daesh rebels.
This comes as President Ghani has announced a major assault against IS fighters after a deadly suicide bombing on a protest march Saturday in Kabul that killed at least 80 people.
The inexperienced Afghan forces have largely stalled in the fight against Islamic militants ever since most international combat troops withdrew in 2014.
The upcoming anti-ISIS operation announced by Ghani, dubbed Shafaq — or “Dawn” in Pashto — will see the head of U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan
Nangarhar is one of Afghanistan’s most economically important provinces, a major producer of agricultural goods and a thoroughfare for much of the country’s exports to Pakistan and beyond.
