Kabul, Jun 28 (IBNS): At least 10 casualties, including the death of six insurgents, were recorded following the conclusion of an airstrike, which was carried out by the Afghan military in the country's Helmand province, local Khaama Press reported.

The agency quoted the Afghan Ministry of Defence as saying that a local insurgent leader was one among the six killed.

No group, including the Taliban has commented so far.

Over the years, Afghanistan has witnessed a surge in terrorist activities.

Following a series of blasts in the last couple of months, the government has deployed more forces in-order to bolster security.

The blasts have accounted for at least 500 casualties.
