69 Taliban militants killed in Afghanistan

At least 69 militants were killed in fresh military operations across Afghanistan, authorities said on Friday.

"The Afghan National Security and Defence Forces (ANDSF) carried out operations to clear the areas of insurgents over the past 24 hours and also killed 11 militants of Islamic State (IS)," the Defence Ministry said in a statement.

The joint Afghan security forces backed by army's artillery and air power also injured 43 insurgents and captured two others, Xinhua news agency cited from the statement.

As the Taliban-led violence continues in Afghanistan, the security forces have pressed on to clear the militants in restive provinces but they have responded by armed attacks and bombings.
