FEROZKOH (Pajhwok): Three Afghan National Army (ANA) soldiers and four insurgents were killed during an hours-long clash in western Ghorinfo-icon province, officials said on Thursday.

Abdul Hai Khatibi, the governor’s spokesman, told Pajhwok Afghan News another two insurgents were wounded during the clash that erupted late on Wednesday and came to an end around 7:00am Thursday.

The clash also resulted in recovery of a security post earlier lost to the insurgents, he said, adding a fourth ANA soldier was missing

 “Talibaninfo-icon insurgents last night led by Mullahinfo-icon Taimor Shah, a notorious Taliban governor, stormed a security check post located one kilometre from Pasaband district’s bazaar and took control of it but the post was later retaken from the Taliban.”

Brig. Gen. Mustafa Mohseni, Ghor police chief, confirmed the clash and said four insurgents were killed and another six were wounded during the clash.

However, he denied the insurgents briefly overran a security post and said the insurgents attacked the post, but faced stiff resistance and were pushed back by security forces on Thursday morning.
