Kabul: At least 15 insurgents were killed in a military operation in Afghanistan's northern Kunduz province.
The 20th Pamir Army Division in a statement said that in addition fifteen other insurgents were arrested, reports Tolo news.
The operation was launched in the area in a bid to prevent insurgent activities in the province.
The statement said that there were no civilian casualties during the operation. It, however, did not provide details over casualties of the security forces during the operation.
The military operation comes in the wake of the recent abduction of at least 200 hundred bus passengers on the outskirts of the city by the militants. Though most were later released, at least 12 were killed after being accused of working for government security organizations.
