7 militants killed in Logar operation
The overnight operation was conducted in the Karez Elyas Khan area on the outskirts of Pul-i-Alam, the provincial capital, police chief, Col. Ghulam Sakhi Rogh Lewanai, told Pajhwok Afghan News.
Two local commanders were among the dead, he said, accusing the men of carrying out disruptive activities in the province. Their deaths would help improve security of the province, he hoped.
Coalition aircraft flew over the area at midnight, said a resident of the area, Jamil. He said the security personnel took away dead bodies from two houses, he claimed.
The ISAF media office said they had no information about the operation.
Also on Monday night, militants fired three rockets into Pul-i-Alam, Rogh Lewanai said. The strike caused no casualties. Police have launched an investigation into the incident.
