Kabul: According to Afghan official at least 10 insurgents have been killed by government forces in the northwestern province of Badghis near the border with Turkmenistan.
Mirwais Mirzakwal, spokesman for the provincial governor, said on Wednesday that the operation in the Bala Murghab district near the Turkmen border was still ongoing. Mirzakwal said his government had “done our best to provide security along the border.”
Mirzakwal added that last year Turkmen authorities started building a fence along the border with Afghanistan after a Taliban attack in which three members of the Turkmen security forces were wounded.
