Afghans launch new offensive in Kunduz
Security officials in Kunduz said the Afghan National Army (ANA) in collaboration with police force members have launched a large-scale military operation to clear Aqtash district of Taliban.

According to the officials, dozens of villages were cleared of the Taliban in the military operation and in addition to that, Taliban's key commander Mullah Ahmad Shah was killed in the offensive.

Aqtash, Gul Tepa and Kalbad districts were formed by President Ashraf Ghani last year.

The three districts were under the control of Taliban when President Ghani ordered to establish them; however, after heavy clashes since then, government have control over the districts.

Army officials in Kunduz said they have taken primary steps to retake the districts and clear the region of militants.

"Taliban's strongholds and weapons have been destroyed. Our fight is for peace," said General Amanullah Mobin, commander of Army Commando.

Reports indicate that Taliban suffered heavy casualties in the operation.

According to local officials, parts of Dasht-e-Archi, Qala-e-Zal and Khanabad districts are also under Taliban's control and heavy clashes are ongoing between security forces and militants in the areas.
