HERAT/ KABUL: A bomb and gun attack killed three soldiers of Afghan National Army (ANA) and wounded four more in Maqur district of Badghis province this morning, an official said Tuesday.

An ANA vehicle struck a landmine in Sang-e-Atash area of Maqur district at approximately 9:00 a.m. (local time), a government official in Badghis province told Afghan Islamic Press (AIP).

He said Taliban gunmen attacked the ANA troops soon after the explosion, adding three Afghan National Army (ANA) troops were killed and four wounded in the bomb and gun attack.

The official said Taliban attackers retreated after Afghan National Army (ANA) reinforcement reached the area.

There was no word by Taliban in this regard.

Meanwhile, Afghan and foreign forces killed nine Taliban and detained six more in different operations throughout the past 24 hours, interior ministry said Tuesday, a claim rejected by Taliban as false.

The combined force conducted operations in Kabul, Kunduz, Balkh, Kandahar, Uruzgan, Logar and Helmand provinces, killing nine anti-government gunmen and capturing six more, the interior ministry said in a press release. It said the combined force also seized 1280 kg of opium, 60 kg of explosives, five arms, three landmines and other military items.

In a statement available with Afghan Islamic Press (AIP), Taliban dismissed the interior ministry claims as false and said their fighters did not suffered any fatalities throughout the past 24 hours.
