24 IS militants killed in Afghanistan

As is usually the case, you have to take any real good news coming out of Afghanistan with a grain of salt but let's just pretend today that everything here is on the up and up and so let's celebrate 24 jihadis from ISIS feeding the worms tonight.

Yeah, I thought that would warm your heart.

The story comes from Times of India..

24 IS militants killed in Afghanistan

KABUL: At least 24 Islamic State (IS) militants were killed in military operations in eastern Nangarhar province of Afghanistan, an official statement said on Sunday.

The operation, which still continues, was launched in Achin district a few weeks ago, Tolo news agency reported.

"Most parts of Achin have been cleared of insurgents but the operation is ongoing," read the statement from Afghan army officials.

However, the statement did not say anything about casualties among the security forces.
