Footage from Thursday shows destroyed buildings in the Haska Mina district of the Nangarhar province, which was a former Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIS/ISIL) stronghold that was cleared by US and Afghan-led operations.
The chief of police of the Haska Mina district Najeebullah Yousafzai stated that their operations against the IS militants were met with resistance over the course of several... Еще months, until «foreign forces bombarded the area.»
Resident Omar Ghozang explained that IS militants used the buildings in the area as their offices during their stronghold. District governor Rizwanullah Basharmal added that they had a «courtroom, jails, military systems and caves.»
Afghan security forces visited the destroyed premises and attempted to remove an IS flag painted on the wall.
