Kabul [Afghanistan], July 12 (ANI/Xinhua): At least 40 Taliban terrorists were killed in multiple airstrikes launched by the Afghan Air Force on Sunday, the country’s Ministry of Defense confirmed on Monday.

In southern Helmand province, 14 terrorists were killed and two others wounded after warplanes targeted militants in Garmser district, the ministry said in a statement.

Those among the killed was Mawlawi Hijrat, a deputy commander of the Taliban so-called Sara Keta or Red Unit for Garmser.

Twenty terrorists died and 35 others were injured when the air force targeted Taliban’s aggregations in Dilaram district in western Nimroz province, according to the ministry.

Besides, six terrorists were killed and five others wounded after the air force hit a Taliban position in Tagab district of eastern Kapisa province.

I like the way you cover all breaking news but, please pay attention to layout of paragraphs. Some of the words in extreme corner gets cut. Though, it doesn't render the article out of context but, still you can improve there... and give gaps between paragraphs for better interest of viewers. Thankyou..!!

I hope everything settles down in Afghanistan as soon as possible. I think UN peace keepers should intervene and send their troops in Afghanistan and also least India and Russia could do is to protect the capital and Important mineral rich areas and International borders.
