KUNDUZ CITY (Pajhwok): Three Afghan Local Police (ALP) personnel, including a commander, were killed and two others wounded as result of a Talibaninfo-icon attack on a checkpoint in northern Kunduz province, an official said on Tuesday.

Police chief Brig. Gen. Abdul Hameed Hamidi told Pajhwok Afghan News the insurgents stormed the ALP checkpoint in the Zar Kharid locality of the provincial capital early in the morning.

He said Sheikh Zahir, a former rebel commander, and two civilians were killed and two ALP members wounded in the asault.

Noorullah, a resident of the area, confirmed the incident and said the Taliban rebels attacked the Sheikh Zahir check-post.

Safiullah Amiri, deputy chairman of the provincial council, said the clash occurred five kilometres from the provincial capital.

“Such clashes are a concern for the people. Security forces should conduct clearing operations against the rebels in the area,” the public representatives added.

The slain commander, Zahir, was among 20 Taliban who surrendered to the government six years ago and had since been fighting against the militants.
