KABUL, Afghanistan – An Afghan official says at least seven Taliban insurgents have been killed during an airstrike by Afghan security forces in northern Sari Pul province.
Nasratullah Jamshidi, spokesman for the Army Corps in the northern region, says 11 other insurgents were wounded late Saturday when air forces targeted a militant training center in Kohistanat district.
There was no immediate comment from the Taliban.
In a separate report from northern Baghlan province, two police officers were killed after militants attacked their check point, said Zabihullah Shuja, spokesman for the police chief. One other police officer was wounded in the attack, which took place in the Dand-e Ghori area of the province, he said.
No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, but Taliban insurgents often target Afghan security forces in the region.
