The Afghan Special Forces have arrested three suspected militants during an operation in Ghazni province.

The informed military sources said Saturday that the suspected militants were arrested in Andar district.

The security forces also carried out an airstrike in Andar district and destroyed a large amount of explosives.

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

Taliban militants are active in some areas of province and often conduct terrorist related activities.

In the meantime, the Afghan forces are busy conducting 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.
