At least sixty Taliban militants have been killed in the latest airstrike conducted by the US forces in southern Kandahar province of Afghanistan.

According to the local government officials, the latest airstrike was carried out late on Wednesday night in the vicinity of Maiwand district.

Provincial governor’s spokesman Qudrullah Khoshbashkht confirmed that the US forces based in Afghanistan carried out airstrikes in support of the Afghan security forces.

Khoshbakht further added that the airstrikes were carried out in response to a coordinated attack by the Taliban insurgents.

He said at least sixty militants have been killed and twenty others have been wounded during the airstrikes.

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

This comes as the Taliban insurgents have stepped up their insurgency activities in Kandahar province where the security situation had relatively improved during the recent years.

A group of Taliban insurgents launched a coordinated attack on Spin Boldak security compound late on Wednesday night which sparked clashes that lasted for several hours before the assailants were all shot dead.

According to the officials, at least three policemen and four insurgents were killed in the attack.
