Afghan Forces Kill Taliban Commanders, IS Terrorists

Afghanistan's National Defense and Security Forces have killed 58 militants, including two local Taliban commanders and 10 members of the self-styled Islamic State terrorist group, the country's Defense Ministry announced.
"In the past 24 hours, Afghan National Defense and Security Forces conducted joint offensive operations in order to protect the lives and properties of people also defeating the insurgents in different parts of the country. As a result, 58 insurgents, including 2 Taliban local commanders and 10 IS members, were killed and 23 others were wounded," the ministry said in a statement issued on Tuesday, Sputnik reported.
The joint operations were held in 18 Afghan provinces, the ministry added.
Afghanistan is suffering from the subversive activities of Taliban, a militant group formed in the 1990s.
The crisis in the country has prompted the emergence of local cells of other terrorist organizations such as IS.
