The security forces carried out separate airstrikes in two districts of Nangarhar province killing at least four Taliban fighters.

“A strike in Deh Bala district killed 1 Taliban fighter,” the military officials said earlier on Sunday.

The officials further added that the security forces carried out a similar airstrike in Achin district of Nangarhar and killed 3 Taliban fighters.

The anti-government armed militants including Taliban have not commented regarding the airstrikes so far.

Nangarhar is among the relatively calm provinces in East of Afghanistan but the anti-government armed elements are active in some of the remote districts of the province.

Both Taliban and ISIS loyalists are active in remote districts of Nangarhar where they often attempt to carry out terrorist related activities against the government and security institutions.
