US airstrike kills 40 suspected pro-Daesh militants in Afghanistan
Hazrat Hussain, the spokesman for the security headquarters in Nangarhar province, told Anadolu Agency the airstrike on Saturday night targeted hideouts of the suspected militants in the restive Achin district bordering Pakistan’s troubled tribal region.
“Two Daesh commanders Qari Quran and Qari Fida who were running the camp there to train suicide bombers have been targeted along with a number of other local and foreign militants in Achin,” he said
After Saturday’s Taliban-claimed suicide attack near the Marshal Fahim National Defense University in Kabul that killed 15 Afghan National Army (ANA) cadets, President Ashraf Ghani said the terrorists and their supporters were facing increasing isolation.
“The government and people of Afghanistan will not be frightened by the terrorist acts of a minority, and will vigorously continue to pursue the chosen path of peace, stability, development, and progress,” he said in a statement.
