The United States military targeted an attack planner in Nangarhar province in the east of Afghanistan, the US military said on Friday.
The strike comes a day after a blast killed over 170 people, including 13 US soldiers, outside of Kabul airport.
US Central Command said a Daesh attack planner was killed in the strike, Reuters reported.
“Initial indications are that we killed the target. We know of no civilian casualties,” a US military statement said.
Reacting to the airport attack, US President Joe Biden vowed to hunt down those responsible for the attack.
“Those who carried out this attack, as well as anyone who wishes America harm, know this: we will not forgive. We will not forget. We will hunt you down and make you pay,” Biden said at a press conference hours after the attack.
The US soldiers are expected to leave Kabul airport by August 31.
