AFGHAN INTELLIGENCE OPERATORS CAPTURE THE LEADER OF ISIS IN AFGHANISTAN
Abdullah Orakzai, also known as Aslam Farooqi, was captured by operators from Afghanistan’s National Directorate of Security. a rough equivalent of the CIA but with greater emphasis on domestic duties. The NDS didn’t say when the operation took place, only that it was in Kandahar Province; Farooqi was captured alongside several other terrorists.
Kandahar is a Taliban stronghold.
