The attack was carried out using a drone.
The U.S. has launched a strike against IS in the eastern part of Afghanistan after an attack on the Kabul airport, which killed 13 U.S. soldiers and dozens of Afghans.
The U.S. Central Command reported that the strike against the IS using an uncrewed aerial vehicle was carried out in Nangarhar, east of Kabul. The target of the attack was a militant responsible for planning terrorist attacks.
“Preliminary data shows that we have destroyed the target. We are not aware of any civilian casualties,” the Central Command said in a statement.
The statement did not indicate whether the attack was related to the terrorist attack at the Kabul airport.
