Rebel commander among 3 killed in Herat
Syed Mirza and his men were killed late on Monday night during an ongoing operation in the Zala village of Chasht town, the district chief, Farhad Khadimi, told Pajhwok Afghan News.
The commander, who surrendered last year along with 15 fighters, rejoined the Taliban when he was asked to turn in his weapons, said the deputy police chief, Col. Dilawar Shah Dilawar.
Mirza was asked to quit the armed opposition last week, when some of his fighters surrendered, but he started attacking police convoys, Dilawar said.
