The spokesman of the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and Syria Khurasan (ISIS-K) Sul Aziz Azam has been killed in an airstrike of the U.S. forces in eastern Nangarhar province of Afghanistan.

The 201st Silab Corps of the Afghan Military in the East said Azam was killed in an airstrike which was conducted two days ago in Nangarhar province.

According to a statement released by 201st Silab Corps, the airstrike was carried out in the vicinity of Pacher Agam district.

The statement further added that Azam was also involved in recruiting militants for the terrorist group and was involved in killings of innocent civilians.

The ISIS Khurasan militants have not commented regarding the killing of Azam so far.

Nangarhar is among the relatively calm provinces in the East but both Taliban and ISIS Khurasan militants are active in some of its districts and often attempt to carry out attacks against the government and security forces.
