The U.S.-led Coalition forces have conducted an operation to disrupt foreign-fighter facilitation operations in central Afghan Ghazni province, killing several militants, the Coalition said in a statement issued Friday.

"The Coalition forces conducted a search of compounds in Nawa district of Ghazni province, where foreign-fighter facilitators were purported to be supporting extremist activities," the statement said.

During the action taken on Thursday in Nawa district of Ghazni, two suspected militants, intelligence sources indicated as having links to foreign-fighter facilitation operations, were detained, it added.

One soldier was injured in the operation, the Coalition forces said, adding that there were no indications of injuries or deaths to civilians.

Rising militancy-related violent incidents have killed over 5,800 people so far this year in the war-torn Afghanistan.
