At least six militants belonging to the Taliban ISIS terrorist groups were killed during separate operations conducted in eastern Nangarhar province of Afghanistan.
The Ministry of Defense (MoD) said Saturday a least three Taliban insurgents were killed during the Afghan army operations in Ghani Khel and Mohmand Dara districts.
A statement by MoD said at least one insurgent was also detained and one of their vehicles, a motorcycle, and some weapons and ammunition were also destroyed.
In another statement, the Ministry of Defense said at least three ISIS militants were killed after their hideout was targeted in an airstrike in Achin district.
Nangarhar is among the relatively calm provinces in East of Afghanistan where fewer incidents have been reported since the fall of the Taliban regime.
