At least 25 Taliban militants, including two militants’ divisional commanders, have been killed and eight militants wounded during a raid in Nawa district of the country’s southern Helmand province, the military said Saturday.

“The Afghan National Defense and Security Forces (ANDSF) launched an operation based on Active Defense Status in Naway-i-Barakzai of Helmand on Friday, leaving the above casualties on militants,” Afghan army’s Corps 215 Maiwand confirmed in a statement.

The operation aimed at disturbing militants’ activities in the region as the militants tried to conduct attacks on ANDSF positions.
The ANDSF also destroyed six militants’ hideouts and 25 defense positions, defusing four improvised bombs during the raid in the region 555 km southwest of Kabul.

The Taliban militant group has yet to make comments on the report.
