A commander of the terrorist group of the Islamic State (IS), locally known as Daesh, has been killed along with five his companions in a drone strike in eastern Nangarhar province of Afghanistan, Ministry of Defense announced on Sunday.

A statement released by the ministry states that the air strike was conducted on a position of the group in Achin District yesterday.

“A coalition Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) targeted militants of Daesh in Nargusi village of Achin District yesterday. As a result, Maiwand, a commander of Daesh and five of his men were killed,” states the press release.

UAVs are being used by NATO to assist Afghanistan in counter-terrorism operations.

They have been reportedly targeting militants without any distinction. But Pakistan still asks US to target Mullah Fazlullah, leader of Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) that Islamabad claims is hiding inside Afghanistan

Sources have told Pakistan’s The News that Washington has been conveyed through its Islamabad mission that it must play its role in targeting the TTP terrorists. Pakistan claims the group plans attacks for Pakistan from inside Afghanistan but Kabul says it does not allow its soil be used against any one.
