KUNDUZ CITY (Pajhwok): At least 15 Talibaninfo-icon have been killed during separate operations in northeastern Kunduz province, an official said Sunday.

The newly appointed Kunduz police chief Brig. Gen. Qasim Jangalbagh told Pajhwok Afghan News the operations launched after militants captured Khwaja Ghaltan, Hazrat Sultan, Khazani, Quchi and Kuba villages on the outskirts of the capital of Kunduz.

He said the villages were recaptured and 15 militants were killed and 28 others wounded during the operation.

The bodies of some of the rebels were still lying on the fight scene. Security forces and civilians suffered no casualties. Taliban did not comment on the incident as of yet.

A resident of Kuba village Mohammad Zaman said tens of families have been shifted from Kunduz to the capital of the province due to violence.

“We just shifted our family without taking our belongings with us. There was heavy fighting between rebels and security forces and we hardly got out of our homes,” he recalled.
