KABUL (Pajhwok): Seven Daesh insurgents have been killed during an operation by the National Directorate of Security personnel in eastern Nangarhar province.

The intelligence agency said in a statement on Monday the NDS Special Unit carried out the raid in the 7th police district of Jalalabad on Sunday night.

It said seven Daesh terrorists were killed, including a suicide bomber. The rebels allegedly used civilians as human shields, but they were not harmed.

“The militants planned to carry out suicide and coordinated attacks on government facilities in Jalalabad city,” the NDS said, giving no further details.

A suicide vest, an RPG, three Kalashnikov assault rifles, 20 grenades and explosives were seized during the raid.
