At least three Taliban militants were killed in an airstrike conducted by the coalition forces in southern Helmand province of Afghanistan.

According to the informed military sources in Afghanistan, the airstrike was carried out in Sangin district of the province.

The anti-government armed militant groups including Taliban have not commented regarding the airstrike and the deaths of three militants so far.

Helmand is among the volatile provinces in South of Afghanistan with some of its districts witnessing daily violence due to the insurgency led by the Taliban group.

In the meantime, both the Afghan and coalition forces conduct regular ground operations and airstrikes to suppress the anti-government militants who are continuously attempting to expand foothold and insurgency in Helmand and other restive provinces in the South.
