The Afghan armed forces repulse separate attacks launched by ISIS Khurasan militants in two districts of eastern Kunar province, the Afghan military said Tuesday.
According to a statement released by 201st Silab Corps of the Afghan Military in the East, the ISIS militants launched attacks on army posts in Marwara and Watapur districts earlier today.
The statement further added that the Afghan forces effectively responded to the attack and forced ISIS militants to retreat.
According to 201st Silab Corps, the ISIS militants have also sustained casualties during the clashes but the exact number has not been ascertained so far.
Kunar is among the relatively volatile provinces in East of Afghanistan where ISIS, Taliban, and other groups are active in some of its districts and often carry out terrorist related activities.
