A series of airstrikes killed 14 Taliban militants in southern Uruzgan province.

The informed military sources said Tuesday that the security forces killed 14 Taliban militants during the airstrikes in Tarin Kot district of Uruzgan.

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

This comes as the security situation in some districts of Uruzgan has deteriorated during the recent months.

Taliban militants are active in some restive districts of Uruzgan and often conduct terrorist related activities.

Meanwhile, 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.
