AVA- The Afghan Intelligence, National Directorate of Security (NDS), says at least five ISIS suspects including a French woman have been arrested during a Special Forces operation in the North.
The local security officials in Jawzjan confirmed the report and say the woman has been arrested from the vicinity of Darzab district.
The district police chief Faqir Mohammad Jawzjani said the French woman was arrested during a joint operation of the Afghan Special Forces and the foreign forces based in Afghanistan.
He said at least four militants including foreign insurgents were also killed during the same operation.
The anti-government armed militant and terrorist groups including ISIS insurgents have not commented regarding the report so far.
This comes as counter-terrorism operations are underway against the loyalists of the terror group in northern Jawzjan province as the group attempts to expand its foot hold in Jawzjan and other key northern provinces.
The 209th Shaheen Corps of the Afghan Military in the North said last week at least 35 ISIS militants have been killed and 13 others have been wounded during the airstrikes.
The source further added that the airstrikes were carried out in the vicinities of Qosh Tapa and Darzab districts.
