The leader of the Islamic State terrorist group Abu Sayed was killed during a raid in the north-eastern province of Kunduz, Afghanistan. This was reported by Pentagon, as well as in the Armed Forces of Afghanistan.
"During the raid, other members of the Islamic state were also killed, which significantly undermined the group's plans to expand its presence in Afghanistan," said Pentagon spokesman Dana White.
The militants of the Islamic state elected Abu Sayed as the leader of this grouping in Afghanistan in the spring of this year, the report said.
We recall, the former leader Abdul Khasib was killed on April 27 during a joint operation of Afghan and US military in the eastern province of Nangarhar. His predecessor Hafiz Saeed Khan was killed in 2016 - as a result of a missile strike made by an American drone.
