U.S. and Afghan special operations forces killed nearly two dozen Islamic State fighters in northern Afghanistan last week, the U.S. military said.

A nighttime raid on Wednesday in Jowzjan province’s Darzab district killed 22 fighters, said a statement released on Sunday. The action came less than a week after a U.S. airstrike killed the group’s emir for northern Afghanistan, Qari Hekmatullah, in the same district.

The raid was launched nearly a year after the U.S. dropped the largest non-nuclear bomb ever used in combat on an Islamic State cave complex in eastern Nangarhar province, the group’s main base at the time.

Since then, the militants have spread to the north and their numbers have grown from between 600 and 700 to over 1,000, according to U.S. officials.
