But security forces given them teeth-breaking response to the militants, Hilal said. “Afghan Air Forces also supported the security forces in the district.”

He added that 43 Taliban insurgents were killed, 20 other wounded and several weapons and motorbikes seized by security forces. Fortunately, the Afghan security forces and civilians received no casualties.
