A commander of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria Khurasan (ISIS-K) Sardar Wali was killed in an airstrike in eastern Nangarhar province of Afghanistan.

According to informed military sources “An ISIS-K commander, Sadar Wali was killed along with three other high-profile militants in an airstrike in Achin district, Nangarhar province March 27, 2019.”

The sources further added that another commander, Lal Mohammad was also killed in the same strike.

The anti-government armed militants including ISIS sympathizers have not commented regarding the killing of Sardar Wali and other ISIS militants so far.

Nangarhar is among the relatively calm provinces in East of Afghanistan but the Taliban and ISIS-K militants are active in some of its remote districts and often attempt to carry out terrorist related activities in this province.
