The Afghan forces killed 9 Taliban militants during a raid in North-eastern Badakhshan province of Afghanistan, the Special Operations Corps said.

The Taliban militants had gathered in Yaftal Bala district of Badakhshan and were planning to launch an attack.

However, the Special Operations Corps in a statement said the Afghan forces launched a preemptive raid to thwart the attack plan and killed at least 9 militants during the raid.

The statement further added that the security forces also wounded 7 other militants and cleared 7 villages during the same raid.

The Taliban group has not commented regarding the raid so far.

Badakhshan is among the relatively volatile provinces in North-eastern parts of the country where Taliban militants and terrorists belonging to other groups are actively operating and often attempt to carry out attacks against the government.
