And another terrorist bites the dust, this time it is the ISIS leader in Afghanistan and Pakistan who was eliminated in a drone strike in July, the Pentagon now reports.

The Pentagon says[1] it got ISIS leader Hafiz Saeed, killed in an airstrike in Nangarhar province.

Saeed was named head of ISIS’s ‘Khorasan province,’ which includes Afghanistan, Pakistan and parts of neighboring countries, early last year when a group of Pakistani Taliban switched allegiance to the jihadist group.

Pentagon deputy press secretary Gordon Trowbridge said the strike came while US and Afghan special operations forces carried out counter-ISIS operations in southern Nangarhar province throughout July.

‘During this time, US forces conducted an airstrike targeting Hafiz Saeed Khan, the Islamic State in the Levant-Khorasan emir, in Achin district, Nangarhar province July 26, resulting in his death,’ Trowbridge said.

Saeed ‘was known to directly participate in attacks against US and coalition forces, and the actions of his network terrorized Afghans, especially in Nangarhar,’ he added.

So, chalk up another major terrorist taken out of the game!
