The US forces based in Afghanistan are regularly targeting the loyalists of the terror group in eastern Nangarhar province by conducting strikes.

The persistent raids by US forces come as the Afghan forces are engaged in a major operation to eliminate the loyalists of the terror group from Nangarhar.
