CHAGHCHARAN (PANinfo-icon): Eleven insurgents were killed and six others wounded during an Afghan-led security operation in western Ghorinfo-icon province, an official said on Monday.

The operation was conducted in Ghalmin and Murghab areas of Chaghcharan, the provincial capital, the governor’s spokesman, Abdul Hai Khatibi, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

Crime branch chief, Noor Ali Asiri, said two Talibaninfo-icon commanders were among the dead. At least three Afghan soldiers have been wounded during the ongoing offensive so far.

An elder of the area who did not want to be named said Taliban hideouts on the outskirts of Chaghcharan were being pounded. Civilians had suffered no harm, he added.

He called the military action effective and said: “The Taliban have strongholds in Ghalmin and Murghab areas. They have been asking people for Ushr, and are hampering development projects.”
