The U.S. forces in Afghanistan carried out an airstrike targeting a group of ISIS IED planters, leaving at least three of them dead in Nangarhar province of Afghanistan.
According to the 201st Silab Corps of the Afghan Military in the East, a group of three ISIS terror militants were planting an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) in Payin area of Deh Bala district when they came under an airstrike from the U.S-led coalition forces’ drone.
At least three Taliban militants were killed and their weaponry including their vehicle were destroyed.
The terror militants often use improvised explosive device as the weapon of choice to target the security forces and government officials.
However, in majority of such attacks the ordinary civilians are killed while in some cases the Taliban militants themselves are blown up in premature IED explosions.
