LASHKARGAH (Pajhwok): Foreign forces killed 18 Talibaninfo-icon militants in a rocket strike in Sangin district of southern Helmand province late last night, the Afghan military said on Thursday.

The rocket attack targeted a compound which the Taliban used as bomb making factory and a training facility for suicide bombers, said a statement from the Afghan National Army’s 215 Maiwand Military Corps.

Another nine insurgents were injured in the attack, the statement said.

Separately in the same province, Afghan intelligence forces confiscated 1200 kilograms of narcotics during a raid on a Taliban facility in Marja district.

The spy service in a statement said its special forces raided the Taliban’s arms and drugs depot and also seized five vehicles and some weapons and ammunition besides the drugs.

The Taliban have so far said about the two incidents.
