KABUL (Pajhwok): Two Daesh or Islamic State militants were killed and six others captured alive during an overnight operation by intelligence operatives in Bagrami district of Kabul province, some sources said on Sunday. However, government spokespersons are yet to confirm the report.

Official Bakhtar news agency tweeted last night at about 11pm that the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan’s special intelligence forces conducted an operation on a hideout of ‘seditionists’ in Mirwais township and that further details about the operation will be shared later.

A resident of Mirwais township, who declined to be named, told Pajhwok that a shootout began in ‘Qala Baghlak’ village late last night and continued till morning. He had no further details.

However, Radio Azadi quoting unknown ‘well-informed’ source in the caretaker government reported that two Islamic State-Khorasan chapter affiliates were killed and some weapons and ammunition recovered from them.  The source spoke with the radio on the condition of anonymity.

Radio Azadi also quoted Afghan Islamic Press news agency as reporting that three people were killed in and six others were captured alive during the operation.

Government spokespersons have so far said nothing in this regard.
