The Afghan Special Forces killed 14 Taliban militants during an operation in Ghazni province.

The informed military sources said Friday that Special Forces conducted the operation in the restive Deh Yak district of Ghazni.

The sources said “Afghan Special Forces conducted a raid in Deh Yak district killing 14 Taliban fighters.”

The Taliban militants have not commented regarding the operation so far.

The security situation in some districts of Ghazni province has deteriorated during the recent months.

Taliban militants are active in some restive 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.
