At least 7 Taliban militants were killed in separate airstrikes conducted in the past 24 hours in southern Zabul and south-eastern Ghazni provinces.

“Airstrikes were conducted in Ghazni district killing 3 Taliban fighters and wounding one other,” the informed military sources said Wednesday.

The sources further added that airstrikes were also conducted in Now Bahar district of Zabul province killing 4 Taliban fighters.

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

Both Zabul and Ghazni are among the relatively volatile provinces in Southern and South-eastern parts of Afghanistan.

Taliban militants are active in some of the restive districts of the two provinces where they often attempt to carry out terrorist related activities against the government and security institutions.
