The Afghan Special Forces

have stormed the IED manufacturing facilities of Taliban in southern Kandahar

province killing at least ten militants.

“Afghan Special Forces

conducted an operation in Shah Wali Kot district killing 10 Taliban fighters,

detaining 3 others and destroying a small weapons cache,” informed military

sources said Monday.

In the meantime,

provincial Police Chief of Kandahar Gen. Tadin Khan has said two IED

manufacturing facilities of Taliban were also destroyed in the operation.

Gen. Tadin Khan further

added that the Special Forces killed 9 Taliban militants and arrested three

others during the same operation.

The anti-government armed militants including Taliban have

not commented regarding the operation so far.

This comes as the security situation in some remote parts of

Kandahar has deteriorated during the recent months. 

Taliban militants are active in some of the restive

districts of the province where they often attempt to carry out terrorist

related activities against the government and security institutions.
