Over 600 members of Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) surrendered in Afghanistan, claimed the country on Saturday.
Defense Ministry of the country said that more than 600 ISIS affiliates, including Pakistanis, Central Asians and Iranians, surrendered over the past two weeks.
Recently, Afghan officials announced clearing the long-held bastions of ISIS in the country’s east, along the disputed Durand Line border with Pakistan. Shortly afterwards, ISIS members began surrendering.
The Defense Ministry said 18 more militants, accompanied by 24 women and 31 children, surrendered on Friday. With this, the total number of those associated with the group surrendering surpassed 600, it added.
Among them were militants from Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Russia and Iran as well as Kurdish people, reported the local Tolo News.
The Interior Minister Masoud Andrabi said on Sunday the local Daesh, the so-called Islamic State-Khorasan or IS-K, has been “completely defeated and driven out” of their strongholds in the eastern province of Nangarhar.
Addressing a news conference in the province, Andrabi said the militants are striving for alternate bastions in the country, but the security forces are well-prepared to fight them.
