The Afghan Special Forces destroyed a large depot of the munitions of Taliban group during an operation in Logar province.

The Special Operations Corps said in a statement that the Special Forces discovered the depot in Charkh district.

The Taliban group has not commented regarding the operation so far.

The security situation in some districts of Logar 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.
