JALALABAD (Pajhwok): More than a dozen Islamic State (IS), or Daesh, fighters have been killed and wounded in the Achin district of eastern Nangarhar province, authorities said on Tuesday. 

The self-styled militant group suffered the casualties during a clash with the security personnel in Abdulkhel area last evening, the Afghan army’s 201st Selab Military Corps said.

A statement from the corps said three insurgents were killed and others wounded in the clash that erupted during operation in the district, lying close to the border with Pakistaninfo-icon’s Khyber tribal region.

Zabihullah, a resident of the district, told Pajhwok Afghan News confirmed the clash occurred in Abdulkhel late on Monday. However, he had no information regarding casualties.
