At least 32 Daesh militants were killed during an operation conducted by Afghan National Security Force (ANSF) members in eastern Nangarhar province on Thursday night, officials said.
The operation was conducted Thursday night in Achin district, said Haji Ghalib Mujahid, the district governor.
According to Muhahid, a radio base of Daesh was also destroyed which the governor said was the communication source for militants to take commands from their leaders in Iraq and Syria.
Daesh is an extremist Islamic militant group that emerged in war-weary Iraq and Syria.
Their sightings were also confirmed few months ago in parts of Afghanistan.
