JALALABAD (Pajhwok): At least 17 Daesh -- or so-called Islamic State (IS) --rebels and a civilian have been killed in an airstrike in the Haska Mena district of eastern Nangarhar province.

Attaullah Khogyani, the governor’s spokesman, told Pajhwok Afghan News four civilians were wounded during the foreign forces’ airstrike in the Loy Payeen locality of the district on Friday.

A resident of the area, who wished to go unnamed, said the airstrike had inflicted heavy casualties on civilians. However, did not offer specific casualty figures.

The foreign forces and Daesh have not yet commented on the incident.
