Several militants affiliated with the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria Khurasan (ISIS-K) surrendered to the Afghan Local Police (ALP) forces in northern Jawzjan province of Afghanistan.
The 209th Shaheen Corps of the Afghan Military in the North said a group of 23 ISIS militants led by ISIS Commander Mohammad Qasim surrendered to the ALP forces in Darzab district.
The source further added that the militants surrendered to ALP forces on Wednesday.
According to Shaheen Corps, the militants also handed over ten Ak-47 rifles, 17 ammunition magazines, and some other military kits.
The anti-government armed militant groups including ISIS loyalists have not commented regarding the report so far.
Jawzjan has been among the relatively calm provinces in North of Afghanistan but the security situation of the province has deteriorated during the recent years.
Both the Taliban and ISIS loyalists operate in some districts of the province and often carry out terrorist related activities.
This comes as sporadic clashes are underway between the Taliban and ISIS militants in some parts of Jawzjan province.
