Top Isis commanders killed by air strike in Afghanistan, US says

Several senior members of Islamic State’s central Asian affiliate were killed in a US air strike in Afghanistan, officials said on 13 August.

The attack on 10 August killed Abdul Rahman, identified by the US military as the Kunar provincial emir for Islamic State of Iraq and Syria-Khorasan, according to a statement from the command in Kabul.

“The death of Abdul Rahman deals yet another blow to the senior leadership of ISIS-K,” said General John Nicholson, the senior US commander in Afghanistan.
