The Afghan national defence and security forces killed 27 Taliban rebels, including their leader Qari Hafiz and wounded 19 others in the northern Kunduz province in “active defence”, the Defense Ministry said in a statement.

It added 12 more Taliban radicals were killed and 14 injured in Kandahar, eight others were neutralized and seven wounded in Helmand and five killed and six captured in Zabul.

Earlier, as EurAsian Times reported, several “infiltrators” opened fire on their comrades as they slept, Zabul governor Rahmatullah Yarmal said, in one of the deadliest attacks since the US signed a withdrawal deal with the Taliban last month.

The pre-dawn raid targeted joint police and army headquarters near Qalat, the provincial capital, long considered a Taliban stronghold. “In the attack, 14 Afghan army forces and 10 policemen were killed,” Zabul provincial council chief Ata Jan Haq Bayan said.

He added that four other Afghan security forces were missing. “The militants had connections with the Taliban insurgents,” Bayan said. They fled in two military Humvee vehicles, along with a pickup truck, weapons and ammunition. Yarmal confirmed the toll to AFP.
