At least 27 insurgents have been killed in a series of coordinated operations over the past 24 hours by the Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF), the Ministry of Interior (MoI) said in a statement on Tuesday.
In addition, 35 insurgents were injured.
The operations were conducted in Kandahar, Uruzgan, Nangarhar, Helmand, Badghis, Farah, Paktiya and Zabul provinces, the statement said.
"During the same 24 hour period, Afghan National Police discovered and defused four different types of IEDs placed by enemies of Afghanistan for destructive activities in Arghistan district of southern Kandahar province," it said.
The MoI, however, did not comment on whether any security force members were injured during the operations.
