JALALABAD (Pajhwok): Measures on central and regional levels would be taken to purge eastern Nangarhar province of Islamic State militant group, a parliamentary delegation said on Saturday.

The Wolesi Jirgainfo-icon delegation, headed by lawmaker Haji Zahir Qadir, visited the province to investigate about recent activities of the group in the province, a statement from the governor’s house media office said.

It quoted Governor Gulab Mangal as giving thanks to the security forces for clearing Chaparhar district of the Daesh outfit. The governor said operation against the group was underway in Pachirawgam district.

Earlier some reports said the Afghan security forces had recaptured the Tora Borainfo-icon area in Pachirawgam district from Daesh militants.

The Daesh affiliates seized the strategic location from Talibaninfo-icon insurgents after clashes which have displaced hundreds of families.

The Nangarhar governor promised dispatching assistance to the displaced families as soon as possible.

Lawmaker Zahir Qadir asked security officials to formally share with them problems in their plans so they could be discussed with the central government.

He said local residents would be mobilized against the group and they would be supported on local and national levels.

Gen. Zaman Wazir, 201 Selab Military Corps commander, assured the participants of taking utmost care of civilians during their operations and said areas which had been cleared of militants would be protected in cooperation with other security organs.

A member of the provincial council, Zabihullah Zamarai, said urgent measures were required to contain the negative propaganda and protect cleared areas.
