At least eleven militants affiliated with the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria have surrendered to the Afghan armed forces in northern Jawzjan province of Afghanistan, reports said.
The Ministry of Defense (MoD) said the militants surrendered and handed over five weapons and six motorcycles to the Afghan armed forces.
The development comes as ISIS militant groups intend to expand their foothold in this province.
This comes as sporadic clashes are also underway between the Taliban and ISIS militants in certain parts of Jawzjan province.
Over 100 affiliates of both the groups have been killed in the clashes.
