At least 14 Daesh militants were killed in airstrikes carried out by the Afghan Air Force in eastern Nangarhar province, Khaama reported Friday.

The Ministry of Defense (MoD) said the airstrikes pounded the sanctuaries of the terror group in the restive Achin district.

A statement by MoD said at least 12 Daesh fanatics were also injured and numerous weapons, ammunition and explosives were also destroyed in the raids.

The Afghan national security forces have stepped up counter-terrorism operations in the restive districts of Nangarhar province as the insurgency activities by Daesh fanatics have been rampant during the recent months.

Meanwhile, the Afghan Air Force has also doubled air raids against the terrorist groups with the arrival of new combat aircraft which are expected to turn tide in favor of the Afghan security forces.

Afghanistan received six MD-530 aircrafts during the first quarter of 2015 and it will have a total of 16 of them in early 2016.

Afghanistan has also received 3 Mi-25 gunship helicopters from India and will receive another gunship in the near future which is expected to further increase the capabilities of the Afghan Air Force.
