At least two militants affiliated with the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria Khurasan (ISIS-K) were killed during the clash and airstrike in eastern Kunar province of Afghanistan.

The Ministry of Defense of Afghanistan said Monday that the incident took place in Chapa Dara district and as a result one militant was also wounded.

According to a statement released by the Ministry of Defense, the Afghan forces responded to militants fire and carried out airstrike, leaving two militants dead and one more wounded.

The anti-government armed militant and terrorist groups including ISIS-K affiliates have not commented regarding the report so far.

Kunar is among the relatively volatile provinces in East of Afghanistan where the Taliban insurgents as well as militants affiliated with the other terrorist groups are actively operating in its various districts and often carry out insurgency and terrorist related activities.

The latest airstrikes in Wataput have been carried out amid ongoing counter-terrorism operations against the loyalists of the terror group in some restive provinces of the country.

At least two militants affiliated with the terror group were killed during a similar operation in Wata Pur district last week.
