AT News Report

KABUL: Three members of the notorious Haqqani Terrorist Network were detained in Kabul, the capital city in a fresh crackdown lunched by spy operatives on Monday.

“The National Directorate of Security (NDS) personnel launched an operation in Police District 8 of Kabul. As a result, three members of Haqqani terrorist group were arrested,” Presidential Information Coordination Center (Tawhid Center) said in a statement.

The statement did not disclose the exact time of the operation conducted by the NDS, the primary intelligence agency of the country, Xinhua reported.

As a Taliban-linked militant group, the Haqqani network, operating mostly in eastern provinces and the capital Kabul, has been responsible for many high-profile attacks against security forces.

On Sunday night, a police officer was wounded after unknown men hurled a hand grenade on a security checkpoint in Dough Abad, an area in Police District 7 of Kabul, police spokesman Ferdous Faramarz confirmed.
