CHARIKARinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): Up to 20 Talibaninfo-icon fighters were killed and six others wounded in a joint operation by Afghan and NATOinfo-icon-led soldiers in central Parwan province, the governor said on Saturday.

The three-day offensive was conducted in different districts of the province, killing 20 insurgents in Ghorband Valley, Abdul Basir Salangi told Pajhwok Afghan News.

He said the rebels were killed in Qul Hero and Kafashan areas. The joint force did not suffer any casualties during the operation, which will be extended to Siah Gird, Surkh-i-Parsa and Sheikh Ali districts.

Although the governor said no troops were wounded, resident Abdul Ghaffar claimed seeing the body of an Afghan soldier in the area.
