According to the ministry, these strikes were conducted in the Nawa district.
These Al-Qaeda fighters used to train the Taliban to make bombs in Helmand, the ministry said.
“Massoud Ahmad who was the facilitator for Al-Q fighters in Helmand is among those killed by the airstrikes,” the ministry claimed.
Taliban did not comment yet.
This comes after the ministry claimed on Saturday at least four Al-Qaeda and 15 Taliban fighters were killed in Afghan air force strikes in the Nawa district of Helmand province.
