The Ministry of Interior (MoI) said the operations were jointly conducted by the Afghan National Security Forces on Saturday evening.
“Yesterday evening, Afghan National Security Forces conducted an anti-terrorism joint operation to clear some of the areas from terrorists and enemies of peace and stability of Afghanistan,” a statement by MoI said.
The statement further added that the operation was conducted in Gogardak region, Shabarghan city capital of Jowzjan province, as a result 15 armed militants were killed and 10 others were wounded.
The clearance operation still continues against armed insurgents in Shabarghan City, MoI added.
“In a separate report, yesterday evening, Afghan National Police attacked Taliban’s sanctuaries in Nikroz village, Khas Oruzgan district of Oruzgan province, as a result four armed Taliban were killed and one was wounded,” MoI said, adding that two Afghan National Policemen were wounded during the operation.
The anti-government armed militant groups have not commented regarding the reports so far.
Both Jawzjan and Uruzgan provinces are among the relatively voalatile provinces where anti-government armed militants are active in its remote districts.
The militants frequently carry out insurgency activities which comes amid rampant Taliban-led insurgency as the group announced its spring offensive earlier this month.
