Assadullah Orakzai, a Pakistan-origin terrorist operating in Afghstan as the head of intelligence for ISIS Khorasan branch, was killed in an operation by Afghan security forces, confirmed National Directorate of Security (NDS) on Saturday.

Assadullah Orakzai, who was a Pakist national, was killed during an operation near Jalalabad city, the centre of Nangarhar province, NDS confirmed in a statement. He was the head of intelligence for the Khorasan branch of Daesh (IS).

Orakzai was involved in plotting deadly attacks on a number of military and civilian targets in Afghstan, Tolo News reported.

"The Special Units of the National Directorate of Security NDS have eliminated Ziaurrahman known as Assadullah Orakzai, the native of Akhel Orakzai agency of Pakistan during a targeted operation," the statement said.

In May, Afghan security forces arrested top ISIS commander Zia-Ul-Haq, known as Abu Omar Khoras along with two other top Daesh leaders.

On April 4, the NDS had announced the arrest of Abdullah Orakzai, who is known as Aslam Farooqi, the leader of the Khorasan branch of Daesh and 19 other Daesh members, including Qari Zahid and Saifullah known as Abu Talaha, during an operation by NDS special units.
