The statement did not say whether the strike was launched by the NATO-led coalition forces or the Afghan army, Xinhua reported.

The strikes also destroyed a number of weapons, ammunition and explosive materials, the statement added.

Fighting rages across the war-torn country and clashes between security forces and Taliban have been continuing in more than 20 out of the country’s 34 provinces since early April when the Taliban launched a yearly offensive. (Agencies)
