KABUL: The officials and Taliban on Monday claimed causing casualties to each other in separate incidents in various parts of the country.

Interior ministry press releases, available with the AIP, stated combined forces conducted operations in Kunduz, Uruzgan, Wardak, Ghazni, Farah, Balkh, Zabul, Nangarhar, Kandahar, Ghor and Helmand provinces over the past 24 hours. It added 24 Taliban fighters were killed and 23 more, including a commander, were arrested in the offensives.

Meanwhile, a defence ministry press release said the security forces seized three caches of weapons in Panjwai district of Kandahar province. It added 1100 kilograms of explosives, 100 landmines, 750 suicide vests and other war gadgets were seized in the caches. The press release said four ANA soldiers were injured in blasts and attacks of the armed opponents in Logar, Wardak and Balkh provinces.

A Kandahar press office statement said four armed opponents were killed and two more injured in operation of Afghan forces in Maiwand district yesterday and last night.

A separate press release said ISAF air support team killed two IED planters in Panjwai district last night.

The Taliban rejected the claims of officials as false and their spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid told the AIP: "Taliban conducted attacks on Afghan and foreign forces in Ghazni, Paktika, Jawzjan, Parwan, Kunar, Wardak, Helmand, Zabul, Herat, Nimroz, Uruzgan, Kandahar, Logar, Paktiya, Kunduz, Nangarhar, Laghman and Farah provinces over the past 24 hours. Several Afghan and foreign forces suffered casualties."

He said some vehicles of the Afghan and foreign forces were also destroyed in the attacks. The Taliban spokesman, however, did not say anything about casualties to their fighters.

End.
