The Taliban has eliminated a cell of Islamic State terrorists in a special operation in Kabul, the deputy minister of information in the interim Afghan government, Zabihullah Mujahid, said on 4 October.
On 4 October, a source in the Taliban told Sputnik that a group of Daesh terrorists were eliminated, adding that eyewitnesses heard shooting — of both conventional and heavy weapons — in Kabul’s District 17.
“Last night, fighters of the Islamic Emirate’s special unit conducted an operation against IS militants in the 17th district of Kabul. As a result of a decisive and successful operation, the IS shelter was completely destroyed, and all members of the IS group were eliminated”, Mujahid said in a statement.
The Taliban took over Afghanistan on 15 August. The US-led NATO forces evacuated by 31 August, ending the nearly 20-year foreign military presence in the country. Several days later, the Taliban announced the composition of their interim government.
