BAGHLAN: An airstrike killed at least 13 Taliban militants in Pul-e Khumri, the provincial capital of Baghlan province.
The military officials said Friday the security forces conducted the airstrike in the past 24 hours as part of the ongoing offensive to suppress the anti-government armed militants.
The security situation in Baghlan province has deteriorated during the recent years. 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 US forces also conduct regular airstrikes in restive parts of the country to suppress Taliban and other anti-government militants.(Khaama Press)
