At least 11 Taliban militants including their local commander were killed in the airstrikes of the coalition forces in south-eastern Ghazni province.

The 203rd Thunder Corps in a statement said Thursday that the airstrikes were carried out Malik Khel area Waghez district and Sangasi area of Moqor district.

The statement further added that another militant was wounded and a motorcycle along with a vehicle were also destroyed.

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

Ghazni is among the relatively volatile provinces in South-eastern parts of Afghanistan. Taliban militants are active in some of the restive districts of the province and often attempt to carry out terrorist related activities against the government and security institutions.
