The Afghan Intelligence, National Directorate of Security (NDS), says a group of at least 26 ISIS militants have been arrested for planning attacks mourners during the Ashura Day.
A source privy of the development has said the militants have been arrested during separate operations in Kabul city.
The source further added that the leader of the group identified as Abdullah son of Sultan Shah has also been arrested by the NDS forces.
This comes as ISIS militants have carried out numerous attacks particularly targeting the Shia dominated areas in West of Kabul city.
At least 26 people were killed and more than 90 others were wounded in a coordinated suicide attack and car bomb explosion near a wrestling club in a Shia area of Kabul city nearly two weeks ago.
