A U.S. drone strike has killed two Taliban commanders in eastern Afghanistan.

Sarhadi Zwak, spokesperson for the governor of Laghman province said the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) targeted Zarjan and Dil Agha in Masboud valley of Alishang District Tuesday afternoon.

He said Zarjan originally hailed from Bombai area of Dawlat Shah District and was responsible for several terrorist attacks in the two districts.

The governor’s spokesperson added that Zarjan was also under the surveillance of Afghan security forces.

Taliban have not yet commented on the report.

Laghman is comparatively a restive province in the eastern part of the country where armed militant groups actively operate in its remote areas.

They sometimes carry out attacks in provincial capital Mehtarlam and on Kabul-Jalalabad highway as well.
