Eleven Taliban militants were killed during an operation conducted by Afghan National Army commando forces in southern Uruzgan province during Friday night, Afghan Defense Ministry said Saturday. 

The operation was launched late on Friday night in the vicinity of provincial capital Tirin Kot city, resulting in the death of 11 Taliban militants, the ministry said in a statement. 

An arm and ammunition depot of the militants were destroyed during the overnight operation, said the statement. 

The province has been the scene of clashes and fighting for long.
