At least five insurgents were killed and one injured during 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 Thursday.
The operations were conducted in Nangarhar, Sar-e-Pul, Kandahar, Zabul, Uruzgan and Kapisa provinces, the statement said.
"During the same period, the police discovered and defused roadside bombs placed in Samangan, Zabul and Farah provinces," the statement noted.
The MoI, however, did not comment whether the security forces were harmed during the anti-insurgent operations.
