The NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) launched an air strike in southern Afghan province of Paktika Province on Monday, killing several insurgents, an ISAF statement said Tuesday.

Taliban insurgents fired several rockets in the vicinity of the city of Urgun, causing fears and panic in nearby villages, but no death was reported, the statement said.

ISAF forces then searched the area and found five suspected militants preparing to fire additional rockets.

"ISAF ground and air forces communicated closely to ensure there were no Afghan civilians in danger during the strike," said Major Christine Nelson-Chung, a spokeswoman for ISAF.

The war-torn Afghanistan witnessed the bloodiest violence in 2007 as rising militancy-related violence and conflicts have killed over 6,000 people mostly insurgents this year.
