Afghan forces kill 10 Taliban militants

Kabul: Ten Taliban militants were killed and four others injured during clashes with  Afghan National Army in two provinces on Saturday, authorities said on Sunday.
In one incident at Helmand province, four Taliban were killed after army soldiers repelled an attack on security checkpoints in the Gereshk district, the Army’s 215 Maiwand Corps said in an official  statement on Sunday.
In another clash in Zabul province, six militants were killed and four others injured in a similar incident in the Shinkay district.
There was no casualties suffered by the army while the Taliban is yet to make a statement.
Violence is still lingering in Afghanistan despite a peace deal being signed between the United States and Taliban in Qatar in February this year. The peace deal paved the way for a phased U.S. force withdrawal from the country.
As per the agreement, about 10,000 US and NATO forces stationed will withdraw from the country by July 2021.
