KABUL militants in northern Baghlan province, the Ministry of Defense (MoD) said on Thursday.

A statement from the ministry said operations against the insurgents had been initiated in Dand-i-Shahabuddin, Dand-i-Ghori and Kelagai.

The offensive would continue until the entire province was cleared of militants, the ministry said, adding similar operations had been conducted in Badakhshan, Takhar and Kunduz provinces.

As a result, many areas were purged of Taliban. A number of fighters were killed and wounded in the clearing operations.

The security forces remained committed to safeguarding lives and property of the people, the ministry said, pledging to curb terrorist activities.

The security forces would continue to protect the Afghans against terrorists and the enemies of Afghanistan, the statement concluded.
