11 Taliban militants killed, wounded in Kandahar airstrikes: Atal Corps
The 205th Atal Corps in a statement said the airstrikes were carried out in Tangi Wech area of Shah Wali Kot district.
The statement further added that the airstrikes also wounded three Taliban militants.
Furthermore, the security forces discovered and defused 45 improvised explosives devices during the operations in Kandahar and Uruzgan provinces.
The 205th Atal Corps said the security forces discovered the improvised explosive devices in Panjwai district of Kandahar and Tarin Kot city of Uruzgan.
This comes as the security situation in some districts of Kandahar province has deteriorated during the recent months.
Taliban militants are active in some districts of the province and often conduct terrorist related activities.
Meanwhile, the Afghan forces routinely conduct counter-terrorism operations against the anti-government armed groups in this province.
The U.S. forces also conduct regular airstrikes in restive parts of the country to suppress Taliban and other anti-government militants.
