At least 13 loyalists of (ISIS) group were killed in an airstrike in eastern Nangarhar province of Afghanistan.
Security officials said Sunday that the militants were killed in an airstrike conducted in Achin district which is home to scores of ISIS loyalists, according to the Afghan (Khaama Press).
The officials further added another ISIS militant was wounded during the airstrike but it is yet not clear if the raid was conducted by the Afghan Air Force or the US forces in Afghanistan.
This comes as at least 21 ISIS militants were killed in a similar raid in Achin district last week, while at least 15 more were killed during a separate operation conducted in Achin earlier.
The Afghan forces as well as the US forces are regularly targeting the loyalists of the group in this province in a bid to curb their activities.
