KABUL: A member of parliament claims that the Daesh terrorist network is accelerating recruitment in the eastern provinces of Nangarhar, Kunar, Laghman and Nooristan.
Lawmaker, Hazrat Ali said on Friday that the group’s newly-recruited fighters are sent to Pakistan for training and are brought back to the eastern areas of Afghanistan.
Ali warned that the eastern areas would come under serious security threat if the government doesn’t stop ignorance.
Meanwhile, residents of Nangarhar and Nooristan provinces call on the government to launch military operations in prevention of Daesh terrorist activities.
Daesh terrorist group emerged in Nangarhar’s district of Achin for the first time in 2014. The group has since widened areas and claimed responsibility for deadly attacks against security forces and civilians in different areas including Kabul.
