Anti-Daesh coalition members are included Saudi Arabia, Jordan, the UAE, the USA, Bahrain, Turkey, Tunisia, Oman, Qatar, Kuwait, Lebanon, Malaysia, Morocco and Nigeria.
Since Daesh has already armed with heavy and light weapons, and taking this in view the Afghan government should take military means in its elimination. The anti-Daesh coalition has to support Afghanistan in its fight against Daesh.
It is pertained to mention that Daeshe mergence appeared in Afghanistan around two years ago. At the outset the terrorist seemed with black flag in Helmand, later, gain foothold to Urzgan, Zabul and Nangarhar provinces.
Though, the Afghan security forces have destroyed most of Daesh hideouts and killed hundreds of them in the mentioned provinces in the past one year, but still the group deem as a security threat in the country in general and in the eastern Nangarhar province in particularly.
Daesh militants are very active in Kot, Haska Meena and Achin districts of Nangarhar province, where they involved in different subversive activities. Their atrocity is behind imagination as they have killed lots of innocent people since their emergence. In addition to that, Daesh militants were also kidnapped commoners including children and women to accomplish their evil goals. Furthermore, Daesh militants torched houses of residents, leaving mass homelessness.
