The local officials in Kunar said the operations were conducted late on Sunday night in the vicinity of Watapur district.
Provincial Security Chief Amir Mohammad Zaman confirmed the raid and said at least three ISIS Khurasan militants were killed during the raid and two others were arrested.
He said a commander of the terror group identified as Abuzar was among those killed during the operations.
In the meantime, the 201st Silab Corps of the Afghan Military in the East said the U.S. forces based in Afghanistan carried out airstrikes using unmanned aerial vehicles, targeting the ISIS militants in Watapur district that left at least two dead.
