“Based on a tip-off, a coalition forces’ drone carried out an air raid against a vehicle running in Nah-r-Sufi locality of Chahar Dara district overnight. The airstrike left seven militants killed and two other militants injured,” district Governor Zulmai Farooqi told Xinhua.

The vehicle belonging to the Afghan National Police (ANP) was destroyed in the attack.

The militants seized the vehicle from security forces during a brief seizure of provincial capital Kunduz city late last year, the governor said.

The targeted militants arrived in Kunduz from southern Helmand province a couple of weeks ago to support local Taliban in fight against security forces in Kunduz, according to the governor.

In another development, a Taliban military chief named Abdul Jabar Mardan for the neighboring Baghan province was killed during a special operation conducted by Afghan forces on Monday evening, a provincial official told Xinhua earlier on Tuesday.

The Taliban militant group has yet to make comments. Enditem
