20 killed in Nangarhar onset

KABUL: At least 20 insurgents were killed and 21 others were arrested in an operation carried out by Afghan and foreign forces in eastern Nangarhar province, local officials said on Sunday. The operation was launched one week ago in Shirzad district of Nangarhar province to wipe out insurgents from the area. The operation will soon be expanded to two other districts in the province, officials added.
The militants have suffered heavy casualties in the operation so far, Alishah Paktiawal the police chief of Nangarhar said. “A Taliban commander was also killed in clashes with Afghan and foreign troops in the operation,” Paktiawal added. There were no civilian and military casualties in the operation, local officials said.
