24 militants killed in S. Afghanistan’s fresh operations: official

TIRIN KOT, Afghanistan, June 4, 2018 (BSS/Xinhua) – Twenty-four militants
loyal to Taliban have been killed and two others wounded following military
operations in the country’s southern province of Uruzgan, an official said
Monday.

The operation was launched by army commandos in restive Dihrawud and
Daychopan districts of the province on Sunday, leaving 24 fighters dead and
two others wounded, Ahmad Sadeq Isakhil, a press officer of Afghan army’s
205-Atal Corps, told Xinhua.

Several enemies’ fighting positions were also destroyed by the security
forces, he said.

Security situation has been improving in Uruzgan, the former stronghold of
Taliban, over the last months, as security forces have conducted search and
cordon operations across the province. But the militants attack government
interests in the province from time to time.

The Taliban militant group has yet to make comments.
