Local sources in Nangarhar have confirmed the killing of a Taliban fighter named “Kamardin” by ISIS militants. The incident occurred on Monday night, January 8th, at Kamardin’s residence in the Waygal area of the Dara-e Noor district.
The victim, a member of the Taliban, had returned to his home in Dara-e Noor for personal reasons when he was ambushed by ISIS militants. According to the sources, not only did the militants carry out the attack, but they also seized the weapons belonging to Kamardin.
Despite the gravity of the situation, the Taliban have yet to release any official statements regarding this incident. Furthermore, ISIS has remained silent on the matter, offering no comments or claims.
Disturbingly, there are emerging reports suggesting an increasing ISIS presence in the Dara-e Noor district of Nangarhar province. This follows a recent incident in which ISIS militants beheaded an individual in the Chawkay district of Konar province, accusing the victim of spying for the Taliban.
