KABUL (Pajhwok): Security forces have reportedly arrested a dozen members of Daesh, or Islamic State (IS), during a four-day operation in northeastern Badakhshan province.

The Al-Mersaad, a media outlet, reported on Friday the Islamic Emirate special forces launched the operation this week against an “important network” of the IS in Badakhshan.

The four-day operation led to the arrest of 12 IS-K militants and seizure of large weapons caches, including assault rifles, bombs, bullets, computers and other technical equipment, the media outlet quoted unnamed security officials as saying.
