Airstrike kills 4 Taliban fighters in Afghanistan's south: Military
Kabul/Sputnik: The Afghan air force launched a strike overnight on a Taliban hideout in the southern province of Kandahar that killed four fighters, the military said.
"Last night, air forces identified a militant hideout in the Kalan Kicha area of Maiwand district of Kandahar province that killed four militants," the statement read.
The airstrike also destroyed a vehicle and a cache of weapons.
The Taliban, which maintains a strong presence in the region, has not responded to the statement.
They were quick to claim a roadside bomb blast that killed two US soldiers in Kandahar last week.
