A coordinated attack by militants affiliated with ISIS on security posts in Nangarhar province have been rebuffed, local official said.

“One armed opponent was killed and two others wounded in the retaliatory attack,” Col. Mashriqiwal has said in the press release.

There were no casualties to police and civilians, the statement adds.

Although, Col. Mashriqiwal has not specified what group the militants belonged to but Achin District is a stronghold for Daesh in Nangarhar
