"The sortie was launched in Washer district, western part of Helmand province on Saturday. One militants' vehicle and a motorcycle were also destroyed by the strike," Afghan National Army Special Operations Corps said in a statement.
Helmand province is a known Taliban stronghold.
The Taliban militants, controlling parts of the restive province, use rugged terrains and mountains as hideouts and frequently launch hit-and-run attacks against the security forces.
The militant group has not responded to the report so far.
