Daesh radio station destroyed by Afghan air force in Nangarhar

The Afghan Air Force carried out an air strike in Achin district in eastern Nangarhar province on Monday, and destroyed a radio station reportedly run by Daesh.

According to Dawlat Waziri, a defense ministry spokesman, this was the third time security forces had silenced the radio station.

Nangarhar residents have become increasingly concerned over the radio station in the past few weeks as the station known as the “Voice of the Caliphate” has been broadcasting pro-Daesh sentiment and using the channel to recruit new members.

Repeated calls were made to government to silence the radio station but despite previous efforts to eliminate the broadcaster, the group continued to air their propaganda.

Last month, officials said that the group was using a mobile studio, making it difficult for security forces to pin-point their location. Tolo News reported.
