Backed by US air strikes, embattled Afghan security forces have retaken Khanshin, a volatile district in the southern province of Helmand, which collapsed to Taliban insurgents two weeks ago.
Security officials on the battlefield have reported that the insurgent group has sustained a massive casualty toll.
“The operations are continuing, sufficient forces deployed there including the air force and the commando forces, Taliban are still showing some slight resistance,” Helmand police chief Abdul Rahman Sarjang said.
US air strikes against Taliban on the battlefield have been welcomed by the Afghan officials who in the past have constantly called for such an engagement in order to bolster the strength of the Afghan forces in their battles.
