"Based on intelligence reports, 24 Taliban militants were killed and 17 others wounded in guided missile strikes in Khas Uruzgan district, Uruzgan province," army Corps 201 Selab said in a statement without disclosing the exact time of the strikes.
The statement did not say whether the strike was launched by the NATO-led coalition forces or the Afghan army.
The strikes also destroyed a number of weapons, ammunition and explosive materials, the statement added.
Fighting rages across the war-torn country and clashes between security forces and Taliban have been continuing in more than 20 out of the country's 34 provinces since early April when the Taliban launched a yearly offensive.
