FEROZKOH (Pajhwok): At least nine insurgents have died and four others wounded as a result of fresh clashes in the Charsada district of western Ghorinfo-icon province, officials said on Tuesday.

Fazl Haq Ehsan, provincial council head, said Talibaninfo-icon mounted three attacks on security check posts on Monday but faced with stern resistance from Afghan National Army (ANA).

Ehsan said a major check post overrun by Taliban was regained by security forces.

Abdul Hai Khatibi, the governor’s spokesman, said Taliban had faced with defeat in the province and retreated. He added insurgents had suffered heavy casualties but he had no exact details.
