At least 20 people are killed as members of the Takfiri Daesh terrorist group and Taliban militants turn on each other and engage in a fierce exchange of gunfire in Afghanistan’s eastern province of Nangarhar.

Provincial police spokesman, Colonel Hazrat Hussain Mashraqiwal, said on Friday that the skirmishes took place the previous evening in the Pachir Aw Agam district of the province, located some 100 kilometers (62 miles) east of the capital, Kabul.

Mashraqiwal added that a number of houses in the area were also torched as a result of the clash between the two militant groups.

Neither Taliban nor Daesh has made any comments on the incident.
