Afghan security forces and NATO forces have killed a senior Daesh commander named Qari Munib in a joint operation, a statement released by Afghanistan's presidential office said late Thursday.
The operation was reportedly carried out on February 1 in the eastern Nangarhar province of Afghanistan.
The statement also elaborated that the operation was launched upon Afghan President Ashraf Ghani's order.
Munib was responsible for facilitating a series of deadly attacks in the capital Kabul, including the suicide bombing in July 2016 against Hazara Shiites that killed more than 80 people and injured hundreds.
