Taliban claims arrest of more than 250 IS terrorists in 1 month

Taliban claims arrest of more than 250 IS terrorists in 1 month

Kabul: More than 250 Islamic State (IS) terrorists were arrested within the past month, the Taliban-led government in Afghanistan has claimed adding that many of them are the prisoners who had fled from the prisons across the country.

"250 individuals affiliated with Daesh have been arrested. They were those who fled from the prisons. Some of their plans were to carry out blasts but the plans failed, tens of their attacks were thwarted. " TOLO News reported on Wednesday evening citing one of the Taliban officials as saying.

The development comes after the terror group's Khorasan branch (IS-K) claimed responsibility for bombings at two Shia mosques in Kunduz and Kandahar province.

Dozens of civilians were killed and a great number of them received injuries.

The attack in the Kandahar city mosque on October 15 killed 63 people, while the bombings in the Kunduz claimed the lives of at least 50 people.

"The intelligence agency of Afghanistan should detect the sanctuaries and supporters of this group and eliminate them, otherwise it will be a great danger for Afghanistan in the future," said Sadiq Shinwari, a former member of the military.

On October 16, the IS announced that they will attack Shia Muslims everywhere, in their homes and centre.

The IS-K is emerging to be the biggest threat of the Taliban government after they took over Afghanistan.

Last week, Russian President Vladimir Putin had warned of IS fighters entering Afghanistan from Iraq and Syria and added that there were presently up to 2,000 affiliates in the north of the war-torn nation.
