The Pentagon says Sheikh Abdul Hasib was killed April 27 during a raid in Afghanistan's Nangarhar province. If sanctioned, it would mark a shift in the US' Middle East policy, which has seen it steadily downsize troop numbers in Afghanistan since 2011.

Hasib was allegedly responsible for beheading tribal elders in...

The blast killed at least 95 jihadists, according to the Afghan defence ministry, but North Atlantic Treaty Organisation officials have said they are still assessing the damage.

Two US commandos were killed in the raid that targeted Hasib in April. However, President Ghani is confident he was behind the Kabul hospital attack.

Afghan forces say the leader of ISIS in Afghanistan is dead.

Hundreds of fighters had been killed or captured this year and the offensive was continuing, with over half the districts controlled by ISIS-K retaken, allowing residents in some places to return for the first time in two years.

The referee's not just there to stand on the pitch and blow his whistle - he has to manage everything. "That sets a bad culture". Italian football officials originally said not enough fans had taken part in the abuse to trigger action against them.

He died 10 days ago in an joint special forces operation in eastern Nangarhar province, the U.S. military said. The military action has succeeded in reducing Hasib's fighters to roughly 700. Around 50 people were killed and many others injured in that attack.

After the March 8 Kabul hospital attack, Afghan and USA forces launched a counteroffensive in the province. However, in a controversial move, President Donald Trump last month ordered the US military to deploy the deadliest non-nuclear bomb in the world.

The US military officials had earlier said if Hasib's death was confirmed, it would "significantly degrade ISIS-K operations in Afghanistan and help reach our goal of destroying them in 2017", according to AFP. The Pentagon confirmed that soldiers were immediately surrounded by rapid fire, which lasted for more than three hours. The amount of opposition caused them to call in support from drones, Apache helicopters, and fighter jets.

The deceased has been identified as leader of ISIS Khurasan Abdul Hasib.

U.S. officials said Logari was among several high-ranking Islamic State leaders in Afghanistan who died in the April 27 raid. He said the militants had "waged a barbaric campaign of death, torture and violence against the Afghan people, especially those in southern Nangarhar".
