Kot (Pashto-Persian: کوت Kot) is a district in the northern Nangarhar Province of Afghanistan. From 2015 into the first half of 2016, ISIS's presence in the district mounted to clashes against the Afghan forces.[2] Afghan troops launched an offensive in July 2016 against the group which led to their being pushed out of the district and training camps being destroyed by Afghan forces.[3]
