Death Toll Rises To Eight In Jalalabad Explosion”

Several militants loyal to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terrorist group offshoot, ISIS Khorasan, were killed in the latest airstrikes conducted by the USA forces based in Afghanistan.

Initial reports state it was a suicide bombing, but officials have not yet confirmed this.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack.

A week ago, 15 people - including eight policemen and the attacker - were killed in a suicide attack at the entrance of a hotel in the northwest of Kabul.

But the Taliban are active in Nangarhar province, as are the Islamic State group.

The Taliban and Islamic State have frequently fought each other in Nangarhar and both have been targeted by sustained USA air strikes. There have been isolated incidents in Afghanistan in which the fighters of both appear to have cooperated.

Afghan and U.S. officials have stepped up their attacks against IS and recently said it is steadily losing territory, with fighters largely confined to two or three districts in Nangarhar from around nine in January.
