PESHAWAR: At least 15 Daesh fighters were killed in three US drone strikes near the Pak-Afghan border in Afghanistan on Sunday, a private media outlet reported citing sources.
According to the outlet, six IS fighters were injured in the drone attacks that targeted four terrorist bases in Nangarhar province.
In October, at least 31 people were killed in three drone strikes targeting areas near the Pak-Afghan border. The strikes had left at least 12 people injured.
Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif had called on the United States to exercise restraint at a time when attempts were being made to revive Afghan-Taliban peace talks.
The foreign minister had expressed the hope that the four-nation moot in Muscat, Oman would find ways of reviving peace talks and would yield positive results.
“But the US should show restraint on drone strikes anywhere in Afghanistan, or Pakistan,” he had said.
