JALALABAD (Pajhwok): Eighteen militants have been killed and six others wounded during separate incidents in eastern Nangarhar and Kunar provinces, officials said on Tuesday.

Nangarhar governor’s spokesman Ahmad Zia Abdulzai told Pajhwok Afghan News 12 insurgents were killed in an airstrike in the Batikot district on Tuesday.

The airstrike hit a pick up vehicle carrying the rebels at around 10am. A notorious Talibaninfo-icon commander was believed killed in the latest airstrike, he said.

301st zone border police commander Mohammad Ayub Hassankhel said the car was intercepted during a search.

Elsewhere, six rebels were killed and seven others wounded during an overnight attack on Afghan Local Police (ALP) posts in Nurgul district of Kunar province.
