The Afghan military has released a video which shows a precision airstrike against a key Taliban compound in northern Balkh province.

The 209th Shaheen Corps in a statement said the Afghan Air Force carried out the airstrike after receiving information regarding the compound in Chemtal district.

The statement further added that the Taliban militants were planning an attack against the Afghan forces.

The airstrike killed 11 Taliban militants and wounded at least 6 others, the 209th Shaheen Corps said, adding that the airstrike also destroyed the compound of Taliban.

The Taliban group has not commented in this regard so far.

This comes as the Taliban militants are continuously attempting to launch attacks against the Afghan forces despite ongoing efforts to find a negotiated political settlement to end the war.
