KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Ten Talibaninfo-icon, including their commander Abdul Hai and deputy commander, have been killed in Afghan forces airstrike in Tarin Kot, the capital of central Uruzgan province, a statement from 205th Military Corps said on Saturday.

The Taliban commander was killed by a precision airstrike after extensive monitoring showed he and eight other Taliban fighters were using the building as a planning center.

During the same strike Mullahinfo-icon Qudas, a sub-commander to Abdual Hai, was also killed.

For years, Abdual Hai was responsible for planning high profile attacks in Kandahar Province and responsible for developing sophisticated devices to kill NATOinfo-icon coalition members, ANDSF and innocent Afghan civilians.

The death of these two influential commanders will degrade the militant group's ability to command Taliban fighters who commit violence against Afghans.

Afghans Special Security Forces have increased operations in Uruzgan Province against Taliban members who insist on countering a peaceful solution.

This month, 69 fighters have been removed from Taliban ranks in this province alone. Taliban members who insist on countering a peaceful solution by committing violence against Afghan civilians will be defeated.

ASSF is committed in removing Taliban leadership who continually plan, coordinate and carry out attacks against the Afghan people.
