Captain Bill Urban, spokesman for the US Central Command, confirmed this Friday that the drone attack was carried out against a “planner” of the self-proclaimed Islamic State, although he did not clarify if it was related to the attack on the airfield of the Afghan capital.

“The unmanned aerial attack occurred in Nangarhar province in Afghanistan. The first signs are that we kill the target “, he said in a statement in which he said he had no record of civilian casualties.
