MAIDAN SHAHR (PANinfo-icon): Three Arab militants were killed during a predawn airstrike by the International Security Assistance Force (ISAFinfo-icon) in central Maidan Wardak province, officials said on Tuesday.

The air raid was conducted at 2 am in the Dandoki area on the outskirts of Syedabad district, eliminating the newly arrived Arab nationals, Shahidullah Shahid, the governor’s spokesman, told Pajhwok Afghan News.
