Two ANA soldiers were wounded during the two-day offensive in the Khairkhana area of Qadis district, a National Directorate of Security official told Pajhwok Afghan News on condition of anonymity.

Local Talibaninfo-icon commander Abdul Hakim, who took part in the fighting, said a local security force member was also killed. The local force was supporting the army personnel, he added.

"The fighting was very intense," said Haji Musa, a resident of the area. He had no idea of casualties, because people were barred from entering the scene.
