US military spokesman Col. Michael Lawhorn said US forces had carried out a "counterterrorism strike" in Afghanistan, killing 20 Daesh militants but did not specify a location nor estimate casualties.
"It is United States Forces Afghanistan policy not to discuss the details of counterterrorism operations," he said.
Afghan media reported also said as many as 20 militants were killed when the drone hit a compound on Friday.
The media quoted officials as saying the strike happened after Daesh militants beheaded seven people, including six Taliban insurgents, in the Achin district of the province.
