2017-07-18
At least 13 Taliban insurgents were killed in an attack on security outposts in western Ghor province early Monday, local officials confirmed.

In addition, nine other insurgents were wounded.

The attack was launched at about 1am local time after Taliban insurgents attacked security outposts in Tewora district of the province.

“They faced [a strong] response from security forces and residents of the district who support the security forces,” a spokesman for the provincial police chief, Mohammad Iqbal Nezami, said.

“The clashes ended at about 7am and four policemen and a resident of the district were killed in fighting against insurgents,” Nezami said.

“The insurgents retreated and the situation is under control,” he said.
However, the Taliban have not yet commented.
