Afghan National Police on Wednesday said it arrested 22 individuals on suspicion of being affiliated with terrorist groups in three provinces.
The country’s Interior Ministry confirmed the individuals allegedly have a link with the Taliban militant group and Haqqani terrorist network.

The Haqqani network is a military wing of Taliban militant group.

Series of arms and ammunition had also been seized from them during the operation.

The Afghan security forces had since beefed up security operations recently as Taliban militants intensified their activities across the country.

However, Taliban militants have not made any comment on it so far.
