JALALABAD (Pajhwok): Seventy- seven Talibaninfo-icon insurgents have been killed and several others wounded during airstrikes and ground operations in eastern Nangarhar province, officials said on Saturday.

Attaullah Khogyni the governor’s spokesman told Pajhwok Afghan News the operations, including air raids, conducted in Hisarak and Ghanikhilo districts.

Sixty-nine militants were killed and scores wounded in security forces operation and air bombardment in Hisarak district in the past 24 hours, he said.
