Nangarhar is among the relatively calm provinces in eastern Afghanistan but the anti-government armed militant groups have recently increased their insurgency activities in some parts of the province during the recent years.

This comes as an anti-ISIS operation is underway in Nangarhar to eliminate the presence of ISIS affiliates in this province.

The operations are currently being conducted under the name of Silab operations, which was launched in April 2017 to suppress the loyalists of the terror group in this province.

In April 2016, President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani admitted that Afghanistan is facing the menace of terrorism from the terror networks including al-Qaeda, ISIS and Taliban group.
