10 fighters killed in Faryab operation: ISAF
KABUL (PAN): Ten Taliban insurgents were killed and several others detained during a joint operation in the Ghormach district of western Faryab province, the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) said on Wednesday.
The two-day operation, which ended on Tuesday, was aimed at clearing a suspected insurgent safe haven in the Tez Nawa village -- an area frequented by the Taliban Shura head for Ghormach.
Multiple weapons, including AK-47s, chest racks, rocket-propelled grenade boosters with warheads, RPG launchers, a machine gun and explosives, were discovered and destroyed during the operation.
