Kabul: At least nine terrorists belonging to the Islamic State (IS) group have been killed and 13 others got injured after their attack was repulsed by the security forces in the northern Jawzjan province of Afghanistan.

Khaama Press quoted the 209th Shaheen Corps of the Afghan National Army in the North as saying that a large group of IS terrorists attacked the security posts of the Afghan National defense and security forces in Darzad district.

However, the security forces launched a counter-attack.

No insurgent group has commented on the incident, so far.

Earlier this month, at least 25 terrorists belonging to the IS group were killed in the airstrikes carried out by the United States forces in the province. (ANI)
