24 may, kabul- Afghan security forces waged a special operation and killed three Taliban militants in the outskirts of the country’s capital Kabul on Thursday, the military said Friday.

“A Taliban bomb making expert Hazrat Ali, two Taliban fighters named Hatiqullah and Hamidullah were killed following a special operation in Spinkay area of Surobi district,” Afghan army Corps 201 Selab said in a statement.

One Taliban divisional commander named Mullah Kochai was wounded during the clashes in the raid in Surobi, 50 km east of Kabul city, the statement added.

The Afghan security forces, backed by the NATO-led coalition troops, have increased ground and air offensives against militants within the past few months as spring and summer known as fighting season is drawing near in the country.

The operation came days after a Taliban attack claimed the lives of four Afghan police officers at a security checkpoint in eastern Kabul. The Taliban militant group has not made a comment on the report so far.(RSS)
