The security forces have carried out an airstrike in south-eastern Ghazni province killing at least 21 Taliban fighters.

The informed military sources said Saturday that the security forces carried out an airstrike in Qarabagh district of Ghazni during the past 24 hours.

According to military sources, the airstrikes killed at least 21 Taliban militants.

The anti-government armed militants including Taliban have not commented regarding the airstrike so far.

This comes as the security situation in some districts of Ghazni province has deteriorated during the recent months.

Taliban militants often carry out terrorist related activities in some restive districts of the province.

In the meantime, the Afghan forces are busy conducting counter-terrorism operations against both groups in this province.

Similarly, the U.S. forces also conduct regular airstrikes in restive districts of Ghazni  to suppress Taliban and other anti-government militants.
