Kabul, Jan 6 (IANS) At least 39 militants were killed in the past 24 hours during military operations in Afghanistan, the country’s defence ministry said on Wednesday.

The joint security forces also found weapons and ammunition and defused several roadside bombs and landmines in the operations, said the statement that provides daily operational updates.
