MEHTARLAM/MAIDAN SHAHR (PANinfo-icon): Three Talibaninfo-icon fighters were killed and five others injured in joint operations in eastern Laghman and central Maidan Wardak provinces, officials said on Sunday.

The operation was conducted by the International Security Assistance Force (ISAFinfo-icon) in the Charaki area of Maidan Shahr late on Saturday night, killing rebel commander Mahmud along with two fighters and wounding a fourth, the governor’s spokesman said.

Shahidullah Shahid told Pajhwok Afghan News the NATOinfo-icon-led troops  also took away four insurgents.

The Taliban have not yet commented on the incident, but their spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid claimed the fighters had inflicted casualties on 13 security personnel in Narkh district. However, Shahid rejected the claim as baseless.

Separately, the foreign soldiers conducted an offensive in the Kolman area of the Alingar district in Laghman, wounding Taliban commander Maulviinfo-icon Abdul Halim along with his three comrades, said Syed Sharif, the district chief. 

The Taliban took the wounded fighters to an unknown location, Sharif said, adding no civilians suffered casualties. There has been no word so far from Taliban about the operation.
