The U.S. Air Force carried out separate airstrikes in eastern Nangarhar province of Afghanistan on Sunday killing at least four Pakistani members of ISIS terrorist group.
The Nangarhar governor’s office in a statement said Monday that the U.S. unmanned aerial vehicles carried out separate airstrikes in Abdul Khel and Shande areas of Haska Mina districts on Sunday.
The statement further added that the airstrikes killed four Pakistani members of ISIS terrorist group in two separate areas.
The anti-government armed militants including ISIS sympathizers have not commented regarding the airstrikes so far.
Nangarhar is among the relatively calm provinces in East of Afghanistan. However, the security situation in some remote districts of the province has deteriorated during the recent years.
Both Taliban and ISIS militants are active in some parts of Nangarhar where they often attempt to carry out terrorist related activities against the government and security institutions.
