Jun 14, 2015 - 17:32

SAR-I-PUL (Pajhwok): After killing as many as 14 rebels, Afghan security forces recaptured areas in Sayad district of northern Sar-i-Pul province, an official said Sunday.

Provincial police chief said that Aqso and Mirzawlang areas of the district had been fallen to Talibaninfo-icon last Friday and the road to Kohistanat district was blocked by rebels.

But police chief Noor Habib Gulbahari said the areas under the Taliban control were recaptured by security forces today.

The bodies of five militants were still lying on the fighting scene, he said without giving more information.

However, an Afghan Local Police (ALP) commander Moman Raees said that 14 insurgents were killed and 19 others wounded as a result of clashes for control of the areas.

He said one ALP member was also killed and two others wounded during the firefight. Taliban did not comment on the incident as of yet.
