Kabul, Nov 30 (IBNS) : At least 12 militants were killed in an airstrike carried out by the U.S. forces in southeastern Ghazni province of Afghanistan.

Local Khaama Press quoted the Afghan military as saying that  the airstrike was carried out in the vicinity of Geru district.

“The coalition forces carried out airstrike against the militants in Geru district of Ghazni province, leaving at least 12 of them dead,” the statement said.

The anti-government armed militant groups including Taliban militants have not commented regarding the airstrike so far.
