Afghan Army Kills 45 Taliban Militants in Airstrikes in Country’s South

The Afghan Air Force killed at least 45 militants of the Taliban terrorist movement (outlawed in Russia) in a series of airstrikes in the country’s southern Helmand province, local media reported Friday 14/7/2017.

The airstrikes were carried out in the last 24 hours in the Bolan and Spina Kota areas of Helmand near the city of Lashkar Gah, the TOLOnews broadcaster reported citing the press office of Helmand authorities.

The news outlet added that the aerial operation had also resulted in injuries of 29 more militants.

According to the outlet, 22 more insurgents were killed and eight more wounded in a separate airstrike in the province, earlier this week.

Kabul has been fighting against the radical movement that is controlling a number of regions across Afghanistan and trying to establish Sharia law on the controlled areas.
