Afghan Security Forces Eliminate 26 Taliban Militants: Reports
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Afghanistan's security forces have conducted a clearance operation in the northern country's province of Faryab, killing 26 Taliban militants, local media reported citing local officials on Monday.
The security forces have advanced in Faryab and killed at least 26 Taliban militants during the operation, though the militant group had reportedly rejected the claims of the officials about the scale of casualties, the Tolo News media outlet said.
Afghanistan is suffering from the activity of the Taliban, a militant group seeking to establish a strict law in Afghanistan and Pakistan, Sputnik reported.
The crisis in the country prompted the emergence of local cells of other extremist organizations such as the Daesh terrorist group, which is outlawed in Russia and numerous other countries.
