At least eight Taliban militants were killed in the airstrikes which were conducted in southern Helmand province of Afghanistan late on Sunday night.

“After Afghan Security Forces observed multiple militants maneuvering for an offensive attack and ordered multiple airstrikes, killing Eight Taliban fighters,” security source said Monday.
