A series of airstrikes killed a group of 9 Taliban militants in the outskirts of Ghazni city.

The 203rd Thunder Corps in a statement said the U.S. forces conducted the airstrikes in Gabri and Mangor areas of Ghazni city.

The statement further added that the airstrikes also destroyed a vehicle and three motorcycles of Taliban militants. 

The Taliban militants have not commented regarding the airstrikes so far.

This comes as the security situation in Ghazni province has deteriorated during the recent years.

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.
