The Afghan military also destroyed the insurgents' weapons and hideouts in the western Afghan province of Farah during airstrikes, the ministry said, according to the broadcaster.

For decades, Kabul has been fighting numerous terrorist groups launching attacks in the country. The Taliban movement has been one of the major forces opposing the government, as its militants managed to gain control over the country in 1996 before being overthrown in 2001. In 2015, the notorious Daesh* terrorist group (banned in Russia) started operating in the country as well. The Afghan military has been carrying out regular anti-terrorist raids.
