KUNDUZ CITY (Pajhwok): Nine Taliban insurgents were killed and five others detained during an overnight air and ground operation in Chahar Dara district of northern Kunduz province, an official said on Tuesday.

Brig. Gen Sayed Qurban Musawi, 209 Shaheen Military Corps official, told Pajhwok Afghan News that the air and ground operation was carried out in Sajani area of the district late on Monday night.

He said the dead militants included two foreign national and five others were captured alive during the offensive. Taliban’s three hideouts and a number of weapons and ammunition were also destroyed.

But the Taliban rejected these claims. Zabihullah Mujahid, the group’s spokesman, said the security forces raided civilian houses in the area last night. He claimed one civilian was wounded and several others were arrested by security forces.
