17 Taliban militants killed in Afghan forces attack

At least 17 militants were killed and over a dozen others injured after Afghan security forces repulsed Taliban attacks on security checkpoints in Kunduz province today. 

The police statement, however, didn't mention if there were casualties on security personnel.

The fighting erupted in the mountainous Khawaja Ghar district of Takhar. District chief Mohammad Omar told VOA scores of insurgents from the Taliban's so-called Red Army commando unit staged a surprise attack on the base and surrounding security posts. 

Afghan soldiers and police personnel were among the dead, he added.

Meantime, Mahboudullah Sayedi, the Governor of Imam Sahib district, said that the fighting left three security personnel injured. 

The official also said clean-up operations were underway to ensure lasting peace in the restive district.
