“An Afghan special forces raid in Maiwand district of Kandahar resulted in 2 Taliban fighters killed and 3 detained,” the informed military sources said Thursday.
The sources further added that “In Nad Ali district of Helmand, an Afghan special forces raid to destroy Taliban facilities led to the destruction of weapons, IEDs and illegal narcotic processing equipment.”
The anti-government armed militants including Taliban have not commented regarding the operations so far.
Both Kandahar and Helmand are among the relatively volatile provinces in South of Afghanistan.
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.
