The Afghan Special Forces killed 11 Taliban militants during an operation in central Logar province.

The military officials said Saturday that the Special Forces conducted the operation in Pul-e Alam district of Logar.

The officials further added that the Special Forces also destroyed a cache of weapons belonging to Taliban during the same raid.

The security situation in 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.
