43 Taliban Killed in US Air Raids

Some 43 Taliban militants, including a top commander, have been killed in US air raids in the northern Afghan province of Faryab bordering Uzbekistan, officials said on Sunday. Gen. Janat Gul, a commander of the Afghan National Army, told journalists that a convoy of over 300 security forces made up of members of a special commando force, soldiers, and policemen came under attack from the Taliban a day earlier in the Khwaja Sabz Posh area of the province, Anadolu reported. Aerial support called in from US forces hit the militants, killing 43 and leaving 20 others wounded, he said. The US Forces in Afghanistan have not commented on the operation yet.
