TIRINKOT (Pajhwok): At least four Afghan commandos have been killed as a result of a clash in the Gizab district of central Uruzgan province.

He said four commandos of the Afghan National Army (ANA) had been killed and nine others wounded in the fighting.

The source said a clash was underway in the district for 21 days and the security forces had been besieged by the militants, who had overrun several areas.

On the other hand, Talibaninfo-icon spokesman Qari Yousaf Ahmadi claimed killing 14 security personnel in the fighting in Gizab.
