JALALABAD (Pajhwok): At least 25 Daesh -- or so-called Islamic State (IS) --rebels have been killed during air-and-ground operations in eastern Nangarhar province, an official said on Thursday.

Hazrat Hussain Mashriqiwal, spokesman for the 202nd Shamshad Police Zone, told Pajhwok Afghan News the security forces conducted the offensives in Haska Mena and Achin districts.

He said about 25 IS members, including a judge named Aslam Farooq, were killed during the operations in the past 24 hours. He added Daesh hideouts, weapons and ammunitions were also destroyed.

Meanwhile, the Selab Military Corps also confirmed the offensives in a statement. However, there has been no word so far from Daesh in this regard.
