TEHRAN (FNA)- Afghanistan’s First Vice President General Abdul Rashid Dostum said the ISIL terrorist group plans to deploy at least 7,000 fighters in Northern parts of the country.

Dostum made the remarks upon his arrival in Northern Faryab province to supervise counter-terrorism operations following the fall of Ghormach district last week, Khaama Press reported.

He said the ISIL terrorist group is attempting to deploy foreign militants mainly citizens of Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, and Chechnya.

The First Vice President further added that the Taliban group should be initially defeated in the Northern parts of the country in a bid to pave the way for the establishment of strong posts for the security forces to fight the ISIL loyalists.

The remarks by General Dostum come as the Afghan and US forces are busy conducting counter-terrorism operations in Eastern Nangarhar province from where the terror group initially launched its operations.

The Afghan National Defense and Security Forces (ANDSF) launched a major operation in Nangarhar to suppress the activities of ISIL loyalists in mid-July this year.

The US forces also provided support to the Afghan forces during the operation conducted in Kot, Achin and parts of the province where ISIL loyalists were conducting insurgency.

The US forces resumed operations against ISIL loyalists after the Obama administration granted them broader role to combat the terror groups in Afghanistan.
