KABUL (AFP) – Nearly 80 Taliban rebels were killed in a series of air raids by international military forces near eastern Afghanistan’s border with Pakistan, a provincial government spokesman said Sunday.
About 65 were killed in a single air assault late Saturday in eastern Paktia province on a “large group of Taliban,” said Din Mohammad Darvish, a spokesman for the local administration.
Four others were killed in a second assault targeting a vehicle carrying rebels in the same region of the province, Patan district, and four in a nearby area, he said.
Another three were killed in an air strike near Gardez, capital of the restive province, he said.
