According to reports, the strike took place in the Nangarhar province’s Nazyan district.
The drone targeted the hideout of the IS, resulting in the death of terrorists.
It is strongly believed that the son of local IS Commander Dawood Mehmood was killed during the attack.
On March 8, a US drone struck a hideout of the militants in Kunar province of Afghanistan and killed 21 suspects from the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), including a son of its chief Mulla Fazlullah.
Most of the dead belong to the Swat; the home town of Fazlullah.
Officials claimed that the drone hit the Chowgam Markaz of the banned outfit in the Shultan area of Shegal district, killing at least 21 would-be suicide bombers.
