Major offensive by Afghan forces leads to over sixty Taliban fighters killed

In a major breakthrough, it is said that over 60 Taliban terrorists have been killed in operations undertaken by the Afghan Special Forces.

The ops were coupled with the air strikes that went on for past 24 hours across Afghanistan.

This comes amid the speculations that talks with the Taliban is also an option on table for stakeholders.

It is reported citing local media sources that as many as 29 Taliban terrorists were killed during operations conducted in the districts of Baraki Barak and Charkh in Logar and the Sayyidabad district of Wardak province.

One Taliban commander was wounded, while one vehicle-borne Improvised Explosive Device was destroyed in the attacks in Logar district.

The bomb-making material was removed from the site and destroyed to prevent it from being used in the surrounding village and wounding non-combatants,” they said.

Beyond this, the Afghan Special Forces also conducted a separate operation along the highway in Samangam which killed four Taliban terrorists along with injuring three others.

Similar strikes were carried out in Nowzad and Musa Qal’ah districts in Helmand, and Tarink city in Uruzgan province which killed 12 militants.
