Commandos repel attack; eliminate 20 ISIS-K fighters in Nangarhar | DVID News

Afghan Commandos responded with precision to repel an ISIS-K attack during a partnered 1st and 8th Special Operations Kandak (Battalion) operation in Mohmand Valley, Achin district, Nangahar province, Afghanistan, Feb. 2, 2018.

After receiving effective small arms and sniper fire from an ISIS-K element, the Commandos responded with superior firepower, setting the conditions for a decisive engagement using coalition airpower.

Twenty ISIS-K fighters were eliminated immediately and successive strikes obliterated eight defensive fighting positions.

NATO Resolute Support Commander Gen. John Nicholson has stated, “There is no sanctuary for ISIS inside Afghanistan, and we will not stop until they are eliminated from this country.”
