A notorious leader of

the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terrorist group was killed with his

seven fighters in a U.S. drone strike in eastern Nangarhar province of

Afghanistan.

The 201st Silab Corps

of the Afghan Military in a statement said the ISIS leader Abu Zar was killed

in Khogyani district on Thursday.

The statement further

added that Abu Zar was one of the most notorious leaders of the terror group

who was involved in vicious activities against the local residents besides

conducting other terrorist related activities including roadside bombings.

The anti-government armed militants including ISIS sympathizers

have not commented regarding the airstrike so far.

Nangarhar is among the relatively calm provinces in East of

Afghanistan but the security situation in some of its districts has

deteriorated during the recent years.

Taliban and ISIS militants are active in some of the remote districts

of the province where they often attempt to carry out terrorist related

activities against the government and security institutions.
