The picture claimed ISIS had killed, wounded or taken captive 1,103 soldiers of the Afghan National Army. Across the border, 382 soldiers Pakistan Armed Forces has suffered the same destiny in 2017 alone.

Meanwhile, the infographic’s claimed 26 soldiers of the United States Army had been killed or wounded due to combat with forces loyal to the Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, mostly composed of jihadist tribes in eastern Afghanistan.

Remarkably, ISIS also claimed 115 jihadist fighters of the rival Taliban movement had been killed along with 680 people of the Sufi and Kadini sects, two moderate interpretations of Islam.

The total casualties on forces hostile to the Islamic State numbered around 2,300 troops.

For obvious reasons, Al-Masdar News was not able to verify any of the death toll claims.
