At least seventy eight militants affiliated with the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terrorist group were killed or wounded during the joint airstrikes of the Afghan and US forces in Nangarhar province.

According to a statement by Nangarhar governor’s office, the airstrikes were carried out on Monday in Haska Mina district.

The statement further added that the militants were targeted in Gorgori, Shinkai, and Angor areas of the district, leaving sixty militants dead and eighteen others wounded.

Several light and heavy weapons including ammunition were also destroyed during the airstrike, the statement added.

In the meantime, the governor’s office in its statement said one civilian was killed and at least fourteen were also wounded during the airstrikes as the ISIS militants had used them as human shields during the operations.

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 but the security situation of the province has started to deteriorate during the recent years.
