JALALABAD (Pajhwok): A dozen militants, including five Pakistani terrorists, have been killed in Achin and Kot district of eastern Nangarhar province, authorities claimed on Sunday.

“Five Islamic State (Daesh) fighters, including four foreigners, were killed in overnight airstrikes by foreign forces in the Mamond area of Achin,” police spokesman Col. Hazrat Hussain Mashriqiwal said.

But Attaullah Khogyani, the governor’s spokesman, told Pajhwok Afghan News five of the dead were Pakistani Talibaninfo-icon.  The raids did not harm civilians, he said.

A resident of the district, Noor Khan, said pilotless drones conducted the overnight attacks in Bandar and Lalma areas, a stronghold of Daesh. However, he had no information about casualties.

In the Lagharja locality of Kot district, the Afghan National Army said, seven Daesh insurgents were eliminated and two others wounded in shelling by troops.

Speaking on behalf of the 201st Selab Corps, Col. Shirin Agha Faqiri said: “In Lagharja area, seven Daesh militants were killed and their ammunition destroyed in joint operations.”
