AT-KABUL: At least 10 Taliban insurgents were killed and 32 other injured in an operation launched by the security forces in the north-eastern province of Badakhshan, officials said Saturday.
“The operation was launched in Tagab district,” said Naveed Ferotan, provincial spokesman.
“Two Taliban commanders Qari Abdul Baset resident of Badakhshan and Qari Mahmood resident of Farkhar district of Takhar province were among the wounded.”
Two police were also killed in the operation, Ferotan added.
Last week, five insurgents were killed and 15 were injured in an operation in the Jurm district.
A number of Badakhshan districts are under the Taliban control, from where the militants threaten the security in the province.
