The security forces killed at least 11 Taliban militants during separate operations in southern Uruzgan province.
The military officials said Monday that the Afghan Special Forces killed 7 Taliban militants during a raid in Shahid-e Hasas district of Uruzgan.
The officials further added that the Special Forces also destroyed a small cache of weapons during the raid.
Furthermore, the officials said an airstrike also killed 4 Taliban militants in the same district.
The security situation in Uruzgan 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.
