At least four Taliban insurgents were killed in the latest drone strike carried out by the US forces in northern Kunduz province of Afghanistan.
According to the local security officials, the airstrike was carried out in Chardara district. A commander of the 209th Shaheen Corps of the Afghan National Army Gen. Abdul Qahar Aram confirmed that four Taliban insurgents were killed in the air raid.
Gen. Aram further added that the airstrike did not incur any casualties to the local residents. The Taliban militants have not commented regarding the report so far. This comes as a number of the Taliban insurgents were killed in a similar raid in Chardara district late on Saturday night.
There are conflicting reports that a number of the civilians in custody of the Taliban militants were also killed in the airstrike. Kunduz is among the volatile provinces in northern Afghanistan where the Taliban militants are actively operating and have intensified insurgency activities during the recent months.
