Three gunmen were killed in a clash with Taliban security forces in Parwan province’s Jabal Al-Saraj district, according to Taliban security officials.

According to the Taliban, three gunmen were killed and one detained in the clashes, according to Kamran Habibi, a spokesman for the Taliban’s police chief in Marwan.

Kamran Habibi has not provided any other details of the incident, and the identity of the gunmen are still to be determined.

Opposition groups, based primarily in northern Afghanistan, have remained silent about the clash.

The Taliban have been accused of killing former government soldiers, officials and dissidents during their nine months in power.

Herat locals recently claimed that the Taliban were shooting their opponents while posing them as thieves and smugglers.
