The Special Forces of the Afghan military targeted a compound of Taliban leadership in western Farah province killing at least three militants.

“In an Afghan special forces raid targeting Taliban leadership killed 3 Taliban fighters and destroyed a Taliban medical facility and a large number of weapons and explosives,” the military sources said Thursday.

Furthermore, the 1st Brigade of the 203rd Corps operations in Ahmadabad, Sayyid Karam, Jani Khel and Musa Khel of Paktiya and Khost has killed 3 Taliban fighers and wounded two others.

Similarly, the Afghan special forces also killed 2 Taliban fighters in Kunduz district of northern Kunduz province.

The anti-government armed militants including Taliban have not commented regarding the operations so far.

This comes as the anti-government armed elements have been attempting to expand their terrorist related activities as part of their spring offensive.

In the meantime, the Afghan forces are busy conducting counter-terrorism operations against the militant and terrorist groups.

Similarly, the U.S. forces also conduct regular airstrikes in restive provinces and districts to suppress Taliban and other anti-government militants.
