Afghan Special Forces, commandos kill insurgents

BADAKHSHAN PROVINCE, Afghanistan – Afghan commandos from the 5th Special Operations Kandak killed 13 insurgents in Operation “Hindu Kush” Sept. 11-12 in Badakhshan province’s Warduj District.

After intercepting insurgent radio communications and receiving enemy small-arms fire, Afghan commandos and soldiers from the 209th Afghan National Army Corps returned fire and eliminated the enemy threat.

Operation “Hindu Kush” began Sept. 6 to root out insurgent safe havens throughout the province. So far, at least 22 insurgents were killed. Afghan forces cleared numerous villages in search of Taliban, including a house they believe belongs to the Taliban shadow governor in the province, Qari Fasaihuddin.

There have been no reports of Afghan military or civilian casualties. Also, there are no reports of structural damages at this point in the operation.

The operation is still ongoing.
