JALALABAD (Pajhwok): The residents of Rodat district of eastern Nangarhar province have taken up arms against the so-called Islamic State or Daesh group, the governor’s house said in a statement on Tuesday.

The uprising in Baro area began on Tuesday, the statement said. Provincial intelligence chief Brig. Gen. Dad Mohammad Harifi attended a ceremony marking the launch of the rebellion.

Harifi told the participants that the government was ready to support the uprising involving 60 youth. He said the uprising members manning four security posts had been provided with all needed facilities.

He said Daesh militants would enter the area from three directions and now their entry into the area had been completely blocked.

Haji Hayat Khan, who has been spearheading uprisings in six districts, told the ceremony that the people of Rodat had taken up arms against Daesh to protect their villages, homes and honour.

He said people had revolted against the militant group due to its atrocities and the uprisings would not let Daesh think about a comeback.

Similar uprisings had taken place against Daesh in other districts of Nangarhar.
