The targeted militants were involved in several terrorist attacks, including roadside bombings and landmine blasts and ambushes against security forces, the statement said.

Three heavy machine guns, a rocket launcher, a PKM automatic gun with 6,000 rounds of bullets and 50 kg of explosive materials were recovered during the raid, the statement added.

In a separate incident, six militants were killed and five injured in an attack on an army convoy in Qush Tipa district of Jawzjan province on Monday, an army spokesman said on Tuesday.

The militant group was yet to make comments.
