JALALABAD (Pajhwok): The Afghan Special Forces have killed four militants, including the Daesh organiser of targeted killings and suicide attacks, in eastern Nangarhar province, an official said on Wednesday.

Attaullah Khogyani, the governor’s spokesman, told Pajhwok Afghan News that the National Directorate of Security (NDS) Special Forces Unit 02 conducted the operation in the 4th police district of Jalalabad on Tuesday night.
