At least five worshipers were killed after a rocket allegedly fired by Daesh hit a Mosque in Achin district of eastern Nangarhar province, officials said on Saturday.
The rocket was fired in Pandolai area on Friday evening, leaving eight others wounded, said Haji Ghalib, the district governor for Achin.
According to Ghalib, Daesh fighters launched six rockets on a security force base, one of which landed on the mosque.
Achin had reportedly become a major hub for newly-emerged Daesh fighters over the past few months.
However the Afghan forces launched a large-scale operation in Achin, leaving huge casualties among the extremist fighters.
