Kabul [Afghanistan], Jan 4 (ANI): At least five Taliban insurgents were killed and three others injured during the airstrikes in Afghanistan's Faryab province, reported Khaama Press today.

The Afghan Army confirmed that the latest airstrikes were carried out on the Taliban hideouts in Pashtun Kot district, it said.

No comments have been received from the anti-government armed militant groups, including the Taliban insurgents, by far.

Faryab is among the relatively volatile provinces of the country.

According to the report, the Afghan Air Force (AAF) has intensified airstrikes in Faryab province in the wake of growing threats of the terror groups who are in a bid to expand insurgency in northern parts of Afghanistan, said the Afghan Army's Shaheen Corps last week. (ANI)
