HERAT CITY (PANinfo-icon): Seven Talibaninfo-icon fighters and three Afghan soldiers have been killed in separate incidents of violence in Herat, Badghis and Farah provinces, an official said on Tuesday.

A shadow Taliban governor for Badghis province was killed along with another fighter during an operation in the Maqur district, the 207th Zafar Military Corps spokesman, Najibullah Najibi, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

One militant was killed and another wounded in a separate operation in Kushk-i-Kuhna district of Herat province, he said.

The slain insurgent was a Taliban-designated chief for the district, he said, adding the soldiers suffered no casualties in the two operations.

Four more Taliban fighters, including two commanders, were killed and six others wounded in a clash with Afghan troops on the Farah-Delaram highway in Farah province, the spokesman said.

Najibi said three Afghan soldiers were also killed and as many wounded in the clash.
