    At least 25 Taliban militants were killed by an airstrike in the eastern Afghan province of Nangarhar.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The airstrike was carried out in the Sherzad district of the Nangarhar province, the Khaama Press media outlet reported Sunday citing the country’s Ministry of Defense.

    The Taliban group has not commented on the report yet.

    Afghanistan is in a state of political and social turmoil, with government forces fighting the continuing Taliban insurgency, while other extremist groups, such as Daesh, outlawed in many countries including the United States and Russia, have also expanded their activities both in the country and in the neighboring states.
