KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Talibaninfo-icon’s shadow district chief and six insurgents have been killed during a joint US-Afghan raid, the NATOinfo-icon Resolute Support (RS) mission said on Tuesday.

Four womeninfo-icon and a child were killed in the operation, which had air support from international troops, RS spokesperson Debra Richardson said.

“Last night, Afghan security forces and a small contingent of US advisors conducted a raid in Sarobi district of Kabul. During the operation, airstrikes were used after Taliban fighters armed with machine guns were positively identified.”

Taliban’s Sarobi district governor was killed along with six other fighters, Richardson said. Unfortunately, he acknowledged, four women and a child were also killed.

“We own every munition - every strike - and we strive to minimise non-combatant casualties through every stage of an operation -- from operational planning, to targeting to execution. The nature of war is horrific.”

Afghan military institutions have not yet spoken about the incident.
