Interior ministry of Afghanistan says to have killed 22 insurgents during clearance operations across the country.
A statement issued by the ministry states that seven insurgents sustained injuries in confrontation with Afghan National Security Forces while three of them arrested.
The statement issued Sunday morning adds that the operations were conducted in past 24 hours in Kundunz, Kandahar, Uruzgan, Ghazni, Khost and Kapisa provinces.
Afghan National Police (ANP) was also assisted by Afghan National Army (ANA) and National Directorate of Security (NDS) personnel in these operations, the statement says.
According to the statement security forces also seized different types of weapons and ammunitions and defused three IEDs in Baghlan and Kandahar provinces.
Improvised Explosive Device or IED is considered one of the biggest threats not only to government forces but also to the civilians.
UNAMA has expressed deepest concern regarding IEDs threatening civilian lives in Afghanistan beside the ground engagements.
