Attaullah Khogyani, spokesman for the governor of Nangarhar, confirmed that casualties had occurred in the area but said that officials would release details later. "The strike was conducted in the middle of open terrain".
Several districts of Nangarhar are infested with IS militants, US and Afghan officials said.
"In the strike, five insurgents were killed and two others were wounded. But, we have appointed a delegation to investigate if civilians are killed". In June، at least three Afghan border police officers were killed in USA airstrikes in Helmand province.
He reiterated that US forces take all allegations of civilian casualties seriously and review each case fully, as well as take precautions in a way to minimize harm to Afghan civilians. It came after a USA air strike in Sangin killed at least 18 civilians, mostly women and children, in February. Civilian deaths are at an all-time high in Afghanistan.
