Eleven militants loyal to the Islamic State (IS) group were killed after aircraft targeted the hardliner group's positions in the eastern Nangarhar province Wednesday, the Interior Ministry said.

"Today early morning, 11 Daesh (Islamic State) terrorists were killed after Afghan Air Forces targeted militants' hideouts in the Diwana Baba village, Haska Mina district of eastern Nangarhar province," the ministry said in a statement.

The IS group, which has been fighting against government forces in parts of the eastern Nangarhar province with Jalalabad as its capital 120 km east of Kabul, has yet to make comments.
