Militants affiliated with the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terrorist group suffered casualties during the airstrikes and operations of the Afghan security forces in eastern Nangarhar province of Afghanistan.
The 201st Silab Corps of the Afghan military in the East said the US forces carried out airstrikes using unmanned aerial vehicles in Dowa Kholi area of Nazian and Gorgori area of Deha Bala district.
The airstrikes were carried out on Tuesday and as a result at least three militants were killed and another militant was wounded.
In the meantime, the Silab Corps said a clash broke out between the ISIS insurgents and the Afghan forces during an operation in Kandi Bagha area of Chaparhar, resulting into the killing of an ISIS insurgent while another insurgent was wounded.
The anti-government armed militant and terrorist groups including the ISIS insurgents have not commented regarding the report so far.
According to the Shaheen Corps, the security personnel and local residents have not suffered casualties during the clash and airstrikes.
Nangarhar is among the relatively calm provinces in the East of the country but the anti-government armed militants including the Taliban and ISIS insurgents have been attempting during the recent years to expand their foothold in some remote districts of the province.
However, the Afghan forces are regularly conducting operations together with the US forces who are mainly carrying out airstrikes to root out the terrorists from this province.
