Afghan airstrikes kill 15 militants including foreign fighters in eastern Ghazni

A total of 15 militants including seven foreign fighters have been confirmed dead as fighting planes targeted a Taliban hideout in the eastern Ghazni province on Wednesday, said an army statement released on Thursday.

According to the statement, the militants launched attacks on Ashaqwal and Nugahi areas in the outskirt of the provincial capital Ghazni city on Wednesday afternoon. The troops backed by fighting planes retaliated, killing 15 insurgents including seven foreign nationals, forcing the militants to flee.

Taliban militants who are active in parts of Ghazni province have yet to make comments.
