9 Haqqani militants killed in E. Afghan airstrikes

Nine members of Haqqani militant group were killed in two separate airstrikes within the last 24 hours, the Afghan Defense Ministry said on Sunday.

In one attack, four militants were killed after warplanes of Afghan air forces struck their position in Baraspari village, Achin district of eastern Nangarhar province, the ministry said in a statement.

Five Haqqani fighters lost their lives in an air raid in Chak district of neighboring Wardak province, according to the statement.

As a Taliban-linked group of militants, the Haqqani network, mainly operating in eastern provinces and capital Kabul, has been responsible for many high-profile attacks on security forces.

The group, which was designated as terrorist group by the United States in 2012, has yet to make comments.

US officials have long said that the Haqqani group has enjoyed sanctuary in neighboring Pakistan, allowing it to launch attacks inside Afghanistan. The US has repeatedly asked the Pakistani government to crack down on the terror group.
