KABUL (Pajhwok): US forces on Sunday confirmed the killing of four senior Islamic State or Daesh advisors on July 11 in an strike that also killed the group emir Abu Sayid in eastern Kunar province.
in a statement, the US Forces-Afghanistan identified the four eliminated ISIS-K leaders as Sheik Ziaullah, the ISIS-Khorasan emir of religion; Mualvi Hubaib, senior commander in Watah Pur Valley, Haji Shirullah, an ISIS-K commander and former Hezb-i-Islami Gulbuddin commander, and Assadullah, a senior ISIS-K shura member and a close associate of Abu Sayid.
“We will be relentless in our campaign against ISIS-K. There are no safe havens in Afghanistan," said General John Nicholson, US Forces-Afghanistan commander.

"We will hunt them down until they are no longer a threat to the Afghan people and the region."
