The local officials in southern Helmand province are saying that the command and control center of the Taliban group has eliminated in this province.
Provincial governor Gen. Mohammad Yasin said Tuesday the command and control center of the group has been eliminated during the night.
He made the remarks during a press conference also attended by military council officials and added that the night operations kicked off in this province over two month sago.
The officials are saying that the Taliban militants have suffered heavy casualties during the operations.
According to Helmand’s governor Gen. Yasin, at least 211 militants have been killed during the past one month only, including 11 of their senior commanders.
In the meantime, provincial police Chief Gen. Abdul Raziq Yaqoubi said the casualties of the Afghan armed force have also reduced during the recent months.
This comes as the shadow governor of the group for Helmand Mullah Manan was recently killed during an airstrike, reportedly carried out by the foreign forces based in Afghanistan.
