22 rebels killed in Logar offensive

Jun 29, 2013 - 16:51

PUL-I-ALAM (PANinfo-icon): Twenty-two insurgents have been killed during an ongoing joint Afghan-ISAFinfo-icon operation -- codenamed “Nejat” -- in the Barak-i-Barak district of central Logar province, an official said on Saturday.

Launched two days ago, the offensive resulted in the killing of 22 rebels, including a commander named Mullahinfo-icon Humayun, over the past 24 hours, said the district police chief, Col. Raees Khan Sadiq.

He added the operation had been launched in accordance with residents’ demand and it would continue until the area was completely cleared of insurgents. Civilians and security forces have so far suffered no casualties.

The dead included six Pakistani nationals, claimed the town’s administrative head, Mohammad Rahim Amin. He said another six rebels were arrested during the operation that came after an increase in militant activities.

A Talibaninfo-icon spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid, rejected any fighter had been killed, saying four policemen were killed during an attack in the Baboos area.
