KABUL: At least eleven Islamic State of Iraq and Syria Khorasan (ISIS-K) insurgents have been killed in an airstrike in eastern Nangarhar province of Afghanistan.

The provincial government media office said in a statement that the airstrike was carried out in the vicinity of Haska Mina district, the Khaama Press reported.

"The airstrike on Tuesday targeted militants operating under command of ISIS leader Tariq Afridi," the statement further read.

ISIS-K has not commented on the deaths so far.

Earlier, airstrikes conducted by the US forces in Afghanistan's eastern Nangarhar province had killed at least fourteen militants affiliated with the ISIS-K.
