Three other pro-ISIS operatives were later arrested in the Marodi Magale valley, a village near Timirshe, PSF said in a statement.


“Our gallant troops had carried out this successful operation that aimed to disrupt pro-ISIS terrorist group operating in Hulcaanod, Carid, and Hafun,” PSF said in a statement.


The PSF said the arrest was made following intelligence its forces received from locals in the area about the insurgent’s movements.
