2018/05/27 | 19:10

(Iraq Now News)- Afghanistan’s Defense Ministry announced on Sunday in a statement that at 19 ISIS terrorist groups’ militants were killed in Nangarhar province.

“At least 19 militants, including two commanders, belonging to ISIS terrorist group were killed on Sunday in air strikes targeting their hideouts in the eastern province of Nangarhar," the ministry said.

Earlier on Sunday, a suicide bomber has detonated his explosives-laden mini truck near an army base in Helmand, killing at least eight soldiers and wounding around a dozen more, Voice of America reported.

Taliban claimed responsibility for carrying out the bombing.

An insurgent spokesman claimed the powerful blast “killed and wounded” more than 100 Afghan security personnel, though Taliban casualty tolls are often inflated.

Helmand is a major poppy producing region, and most of the districts are controlled or contested by the Taliban.
