39 IS militants give up fighting in Afghanistan

The former militants under commander Yar Khan were involved in anti-government activities over the past couple of years in parts of Kunar province, the statement said.
According to the statement, the IS militants have badly suffered due to the increasing military pressures in Kunar and adjoining provinces over the past few months. More than 1,000 fighters along with their families have given up fighting over the past couple of months in the eastern region.
The surrender of the IS armed insurgents took place amid a seven-day reduction in violence by the Taliban group started on Feb. 22.
The hardliner IS outfit which is active in Kunar and the neighboring Nuristan and Nangarhar provinces have not commented.
