U.S. forces killed the leader of ISIS’ Afghanistan branch in a raid this week, the Pentagon announced Friday.

Abu Sayed, the emir of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria — Khorasan Province, was killed in a strike on the group’s headquarters in Kunar Province, Afghanistan, on Tuesday, Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White said in a statement.

The operation was part of an offensive to counter ISIS-K that was launched in March 2017, White said.

The U.S. had previously killed two other leaders of the group in Afghanistan: Hafiz Sayed Khan a year ago, and Abdul Hasib in April.
