About 57 Taliban militants have been killed in fresh military operations across Afghanistan, said the country's Interior Ministry on Saturday morning.
"Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF) carried out operations in Uruzgan, Zabul, Herat, Ghazni, Helmand, Logar, Kunduz, Sari Pul, Badakhshan, Faryab, Paktia, Khost and Baghlan provinces over the past 24 hours. As a result 57 armed Taliban members were killed, 35 wounded and two others were arrested by the ANSF," the ministry said in a statement.
The ANSF also recovered and defused seven roadside bombs planted by the militants in addition to seizing weapons, according to the statement.
The statement did not disclose if there were any casualties on the side of security forces.
The Taliban militant group has yet to make comments.
