At least six members of Daesh were killed in a night raid conducted in PD 8 of capital Kabul, a spokesman for the Islamic Emirate said on Saturday.
Islamic Emirate spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said in a statement that the individuals have been involved in attacks on Wazir Akbar Khan Mosque, Kaaj educational center and other areas, in which civilians have been targeted.
“Two members of Daesh were arrested in the west of Kabul yesterday (Friday), and then a Daesh hideout was discovered and was raided in PD8 of Kabul city. As a result, six Daesh affiliates were killed, and the grenades, explosives materials and a vehicle were seized,” he said.
Residents said the clashes started around 8:00 pm and lasted for several hours.
“It was around 2:00 am when the Islamic Emirate forces knocked on our doors. I went out and they asked me who this home belongs to? I went with them and found the owner of the house,” said Nasrullah, a resident of PD 8.
“Trust me, we were really scared yesterday. The hearts of our children were about to stop. We couldn’t go out, the firing was very dangerous.
