KABUL, Dec. 7 (Xinhua) -- Fifteen Taliban militants have been killed and two others arrested after Afghan Special Forces waged an operation in the country's southern Kandahar province, command of special forces said Saturday.

"The raid was conducted on Friday in Khinjak area, Nish district. One militants' control and command post with several vehicles, some weapons and ammunition were destroyed during the operation Friday," Afghan National Army Special Operations Corps said in a statement.

The Afghan security forces have recently beefed up security operations against the Taliban militants who have been attempting to take territory and consolidate their positions in the countryside ahead of winter.

Security situation has been improving in Kandahar, the former stronghold of Taliban, over the past months, as security forces have conducted search and cordon operations across the province. But the militants attack government interests in the province from time to time.

Taliban has not made a comment on the report so far. Enditem
