At least two key members of a terrorist group were killed in an airstrike in eastern Kunar province of Afghanistan on Saturday.

The 201st Silab Corps of the Afghan national army in the East said the airstrike was carried out in the vicinity of Watapur district.

A statement by 201st Silab Corps said the two members of the terrorist group were killed in Gambir area of Watapur district.

The statement further added that the militants killed in the airstrike have been identified as Ibrahim and Mullah Khairullah.

The Silab Corps of the Afghan army did not disclose further information regarding the airstrike and it is yet not clear if the airstrike was carried out by the US forces or the Afghan Air Force.

The anti-government armed militant groups have not commented regarding the report so far.

This comes as the US-Forces Afghanistan last month confirmed the death of four senior advisers of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria-Khorasan in a strike that also killed the ISIS-K emir Abu Sayid in Kunar province July 11, 2017.

According to the US Forces in Afghanistan, the four eliminated ISIS-K leaders were confirmed as: Sheik Ziaullah, the ISIS-K emir of religion; Mulavi Hubaib, the senior commander in Watahpur Valley; Haji Shirullah, an ISIS-K commander and former Hezb-e Islami Gulbuddin commander; and Assadullah, a senior ISIS-K shura member and a close associate of Abu Sayid.
