23 ISIS Militants Including 13 Foreigners Killed in Afghanistan

At least 23 loyalists of the ISIS (Daesh / ISIL) terrorist group were killed in an airstrike in Eastern Nangarhar province.

The Afghan ministry of defense said the airstrike was carried out in Achin district of Nangarhar, Khaama Press reported.

No further details were given regarding the airstrike and it is yet not clear if the raid was conducted by the Afghan Air Force or the US forces based in Afghanistan.

The loyalists of ISIS terrorist group have not commented regarding the report so far.

This comes as at least 13 loyalists of the terror group were killed in a similar airstrike carried out by the US forces in Nangarhar on Friday.

The Afghan forces and US forces based in Afghanistan are regularly targeting the ISIS loyalists and other militant groups.

The US forces based in Afghanistan have increased airstrikes against the militants after the Obama administration granted broader role to them amid deteriorating security situation in Afghanistan, FNA reported.
