At least three militants affiliated with the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terrorist group were killed in airstrikes in eastern Nangarhar province of Afghanistan.

The 201st Silab Corps of the Afghan military said Tuesday that the airstrikes were carried out in the vicinity of Achin district.

Accordig to the Silab corps, at least one insurgent was also wounded when their hideouts were hit in the airstrikes in Mamand Dara area of Achin.

The local residents and security personnel engaged in the anti-IS operations did not suffer any casualties, the Silab Corps added.

The anti-government armed militant groups including the ISIS insurgents have not commented regarding the report so far.

Nangarhar is among the relatively calm provinces in East of Afghanistan where fewer incidents have been reported since the fall of the Taliban regime.

However, since the year 2014, reports continue to emerge regarding the growing insurgency activities of the ISIS terrorist groups in some remote parts of the province, including Achin.

The Taliban group militants are also active in some districts of Nangarhar and often carry out insurgency activities despite operations underway to suppress their activities.

In the meantime, the Afghan national defense and security forces as well as the US forces based in Afghanistan regularly carry out airstrikes and operations against the terror groups in this province.
