About 20 militants have been killed amid operations launched by Afghan security forces elsewhere in the country, the Interior Ministry said on Saturday.
“In past 24 hours, Afghan National Defense and Security Forces launched nine Counter-Terrorism joint operations to clear some of the areas from terrorists and enemies of peace and stability of Afghanistan. As a result 20 armed militants were killed, 16 wounded and two others were arrested,” the ministry said in a statement.
The security forces also discovered and confiscated light and heavy rounds of ammunition during the raid carried out in Kapisa, Uruzgan, Zabul, Helmand, Farah, Faryab and Sari Pul provinces, the statement said, without adding if there were any casualties on the side of security forces. Enditem
