Over 1,400 IS-K members, including hundreds of fighters, have surrendered in the past one and half month to Afghan forces, the Ministry of Interior (MoI) statement said.
The statement by MoI said that 450 IS-K fighters surrendered along with their families to the security forces from their long-held bastions in southern remote parts of Nangarhar province.
It added the robust security operations backed by the locals help force the terrorists to surrender.
In April 2017, the U.S. Forces in Afghanistan dropped the Mother of All Bombs on the Daesh’s network of tunnels in Nangarhar killing at least 90 militants.
