LASHKARGAH (Pajhwok): Heavily armed militants are retreating as a result of a counter-offensive by Afghan security forces in the Sangin district of southern Helmand province, an official said on Friday.

Brig. Gen. Baqizoy, the provincial police chief, told Pajhwok Afghan News the insurgents’ resistance had weakened and the security forces were conducting clearing operations in different parts of the district.    

A day earlier, Governor Mohammad Naeem claimed Pakistani forces were fighting alongside the Taliban against the Afghan security personnel. Speaking to tribal elders from the troubled district, he alleged the attacks were planned in Quetta.
