ZARANJ (Pajhwok): At least two Afghan National Army (ANA) soldiers and three militants have been killed during an operation in Dilaram district of southwestern Nimroz province, official said Thursday.

Col. Najeebullah Najeeb, district police chief, told Pajhwok Afghan News that eight other rebels were injured and three more arrested in the operation in Gach Star and Firozgi areas of the district last night.

Three Kalashnikovs, hundreds of bullets and eight bombs were also recovered from the militants, he said.

But Talibaninfo-icon spokesman Qari Yousuf Ahmadi said four security personnel were killed and two others wounded in the operation.

He rejected security forces’ claim that militants were detained during the offensive.

Separately, two ANA soldiers were killed and another wounded when their compound came under militants’ attack in Dilaram district.

Najeeb said the incident took place last night and the rebels managed to escape after the attack.
