At least 25 Taliban militants were killed after the Afghan Air Force launched airstrikes in eastern Wardak province of Afghanistan. 

“A total of 25 Taliban militants were killed as a result of air strikes that conducted based on a confirmed tip-off in Sayyed Abad district, Wardak province, on Sunday,” said the country’s Ministry of Defense in a statement on Monday.

Adding that militants’ six vehicles and three motorbikes were also destroyed in the raids, the statement said, those among the killed were four local Taliban divisional commanders.

Warring sides in Afghanistan often exaggerate casualties of the opponent side and it is difficult to verify with independent sources.

The Taliban militant group hasn’t made a comment on the report yet.
