Airstrike Kills 10 Taliban in Afghanistan’s Kapisa Province

KABUL: At least 10 Tlaiban fighters have been confirmed dead and a Taliban judiciary center completely destroyed as military aircraft launched an attack in Nijrab district of eastern Afghanistan’s Kapisa province on Saturday, said an army spokesman for Pamir 20 Corps Abdul Hadi.

“Acting on tip-off, security forces fighting aircraft targeted a Taliban center in Nijrab district of Kapisa province Saturday morning, destroying the group’s judiciary department and killing 10 militants on the spot,” Hadi told Chinese newswire service Xinhua.

Taliban issue decrees against government entities, security personnel and captured people from the shadow judiciary center, the official said, adding that the destruction of the shadow judiciary could prove a major blow to the insurgent group in Kapisa and adjoining areas.
