At least five militants affiliated with the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terrorist group were killed by their own comrades in eastern Nangarhar province of Afghanistan.

The provincial government media office in a statement said the militants were killed during infighting in the restive Achin district, khaama wrote.

In the meantime, the provincial government said at least fifteen ISIS militants were killed during the operations in Haska Mina district.

The statement further added that the operations were conducted in the vicinity of Kham Miran area during the operations involving airstrike.

According to the provincial government, the operations were launched shortly after the ISIS militants launched a coordinated attack on the security posts.

The anti-government armed militants and terrorist groups including ISIS loyalists have not commented regarding the report so far.
