Two terrorists belonging to the Haqqani terrorist network and the Al-Qaeda network have been killed in separate airstrikes in southeastern Ghazni province of Afghanistan.
The Khaama Press quoted the Ministry of Defense (MoD) as saying that two terrorists belonging to Quetta council, normally referred to Taliban and Haqqani networks' leadership councils, were also among those killed.
No further details were provided whether the airstrikes were carried out by the Aghan Air Force or the US forces based in Afghanistan.
The MoD further said that the militants belonging to the Haqqani network, Al-Qaeda network, and the Quetta Council were among 13 killed during the operations.
According to MoD, the Al-Qaeda terrorist network member killed in the airstrikes has been identified as Haroon.
There have been no comments by the anti-government armed militant groups regarding the reports so far.
Airstrikes have been increased by the US forces against the Taliban insurgents and ISIS loyalists earlier this year after the Obama administration granted a broader role to the American forces.
