JALALBAD (Pajhwok): Five Daesh or Islamic State (IS) rebels have been killed in a drone strike in the Haska Mena district of eastern Nangarhar province, an official said Saturday.

The drone targeted IS hideouts in Gurgurai and Kako areas of the district late on Friday, said Sherin Agha Faqiri, spokesman for the Afghan National Army’s 201th Selab Military Corps.

He told Pajhwok Afghan News the dead IS rebels included a Pakistani commander. Their center, weapons and ammunition were also destroyed, he said.

There has been no word so far from Daesh in this regard.
