Afghan armyAt least 41 Taliban insurgents were killed during an operation by the Afghan national security forces in western Herat province of Afghanistan, the defense officials said.

The latest casualties to the Taliban insurgents during the Afghan forces operations comes days after the Taliban insurgents suffered heavy casualties during infighting which lasted for several days.

Led by the Afghan National Army (ANA) forces, the operation was conducted in Shindand district where at least 200 Taliban insurgents were killed during infighting last week.

The Ministry of Defense (MoD) said at least 50 Taliban insurgents were also wounded during the same operation.

The latest clashes between the Taliban factions follows almost three months after a similar clash broke out between the rival groups in this province.

The Taliban factions are occasionally engaging in deadly infighting, mainly due to differences over the group’s leadership, which changed following the death of the group’s founder Mullah Mohammad Omar.

Meanwhile, reports also emerged last week suggesting that two top Taliban leaders, Mullah Malik and Mullah Wakil, were killed in the infighting.

The two Taliban factions involved in the deadly infighting were led by Mullah Samad and Mullah Nangialai.

The Taliban militants group has not commented regarding the infighting so far which comes as the group’s insurgency has been rampant across the country during.
