According to the officials, the mediation of tribal elders played big role in as many as 55 Deash (IS) members to surrender to IEA.
Mohammad Bashir, Head of Provincial Intelligence Directorate, stated: “as many as 55 members of Daesh operating for Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi (ISIS slain leader) have given up fighting… and surrendered to the Islamic Emirate.”
“I was a Daesh soldier, I regret what I was doing and I don’t want to do it anymore as Islamic system [has been set up],” said Niaz Gull, a surrendered Daesh member.
The development comes days after the ISIS-K fighters attacked the Sardar Mohammad Daud Khan Military Hospital in Kabul city.
According to the reports, at least 25 people, including women and IEA members, were killed and more than 50 wounded.
