At least sixteen militants affiliated with the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terrorist group were killed in a series of airstrikes conducted by the US forces in Afghanistan.

The provincial police commandment in a statement said the airstrikes started early on Saturday and continued until late night, leaving sixteen militants dead, including seven Pakistani nationals.

According to the local security officials, the militants killed in the airstrikes are all nationals of Pakistan and some of their weapons were also destroyed in the airstrikes.

Nangarhar is among the relatively calm provinces in eastern Afghanistan but the anti-government armed militant groups have recently increased their insurgency activities in some parts of the province during the recent years.
