New Delhi, Apr 14: Atleast 500 Pakistani nationals have been killed in the US bombing that took place at Nangarhar province in Afghanistan. The area that was targeted was controlled by the Islamic State and protected by the Pakistan army, sources say.

The operation that was jointly coordinated by the 201 Selab Corps of the Afghanistan army targeted the caves and tunnels that were used as hiding places by the IS. It is now clear that the Pakistan army was backing these IS operatives in Afghanistan, official sources also confirmed.

Indian agencies who are coordinating with their counterparts in Afghanistan have learnt that there are no civilians living in the area. There were a large number of stooges of the ISI who have been protecting the ISIS operatives in this area. The US action comes at a time when there was a huge build up of ISIS forces in Afghanistan.

Indian agencies say that the Pakistan army and ISI were nurturing these operatives. The entire area that was bombed was under the control of the ISI officials backing the ISIS, sources also said. The impact of the bomb was so huge that it blew up at least 500 Pakistanis and an equal number of ISIS operatives.
