The Afghan Special Forces killed ten Taliban militants during an operation in Faryab province.

The informed military sources said Monday that the Special Forces conducted the raid in Khwaja Sabz Posh district.

Furthermore, the Special Forces wounded another Taliban militant during the same operation.

The sources said “Afghan Special Forces conducted a clearance operation in Kwhaja Sabz Posh district killing 10 Taliban fighters and wounding 1 other.”

This comes as the security situation in some districts of Faryab has deteriorated during the recent years.

Taliban militants are active in some remote districts of Faryab and often conduct terrorist related activities.

Meanwhile, the Afghan forces routinely conduct counter-terrorism operations against the anti-government armed groups in this province.

On the other hand, the U.S. forces also conduct regular airstrikes in restive parts of the country to suppress Taliban and other anti-government militants.
