The security forces conducted multiple airstrikes in Ghor province which killed at least 66 Taliban militants.

The informed military sources said Tuesday that the security forces conducted the airstrikes in the vicinity of Shahrak district.

“Multiple airstrikes in Shahrak district killed 66 Taliban Fighters and destroyed a large weapons cache,” the sources said.

The anti-government armed militants including Taliban have not commented regarding the airstrikes so far.

This comes as the security situation in certain parts of Ghor 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.
