Afghan authorities announced Saturday that at least four security force members, including a commander, were killed and seven were critically injured in blasts in eastern and southern provinces.
Kandahar province’s Police Commander Farid Meshaal said a blast was caused there by a Humvee packed with explosives that targeted a police outpost, injuring seven police personnel.
Meshaal added that a school and number of houses were destroyed in the explosion.
Afghanistan’s Defence Ministry said “18 Taliban terrorists were killed and 9 others were wounded” in an operation in Arghandab district of Kandahar province on Friday night.
Moreover; an explosion targeted the police commander in the Chapa Dara district of eastern Kunar province, killing four local police personnel, including the commander, said a provincial police spokesman.
On the other hand, police said a roadside bomb blast injured three civilians in Jalalabad, the capital of eastern Nangarhar province.
Last Saturday, two civilians and one policeman were killed as series of explosions hit Afghanistan capital Kabul.
