KUNDUZ CITY, KANDAHAR CITY (Pajhwok): At least 29 Talibaninfo-icon militants have been killed in security forces operations in northern Kunduz and southern Kandahar provinces, officials said on Tuesday.

Eleven Taliban gunmen were killed in Chahardara of Kunduz late Monday night, said Hadi Jamal, 217th Pamir Military Corps deputy spokesman in Kunduz.

He told Pajhwok Afghan News that the Afghan National Army (ANA) 4th unit personnel carried out the operation in Chahardara district.

The forces also captured 12 weapons, 17 rocket shells and other ammunition during the nighttime operation, Jamal said.

Elsewhere in the district, another 10 Taliban insurgents were killed and their two hideouts destroyed in air strikes the same night, the military official said.
