MEHTHARLAM (Pajhwok): Seven Taliban insurgents, including a commander, have been killed in nighttime raids by the Afghan Special Forces in eastern Laghman province, an official said Monday.

Sarhadi Zwak, the governor’s spokesman, told Pajhwok Afghan News the Special Forces conducted raids in Qasaba, Salingar, Nimnanu and Shingaryu areas of the Alingar district on militant hideouts on Sunday night.

The forces killed seven militants, including a notorious commander Amrullah, and detained three suspects, the official said.

With the Taliban yet to comment on the raids, Zwak accused the slain rebel leader of directing many terrorist attacks in Alingar district.
