GHAZNI CITY (Pajhwok): Taliban’s shadow district chief for Gilan district of southern Ghazni province has been killed along with a companion in a foreign forces airstrike, officials said Saturday.

Governor’s spokesman, Mohammad Arif Noori, told Pajhwok Afghan News that the US forces bombarded a Taliban target in Hazrat Shah bazaar in Gilan district on Friday night.

He said Mualvi Mohib Ahmad, the Taliban’s shadow district chief for Gilan and Mualvi Mohammad Pazir, a Taliban commander, were killed in the blitz.

The two were busy collecting ushr or Islamic tax when they were killed and civilians suffered no casualties, Noori said. However, he did not provide more details about the incident.

Shah Mohammad, a resident of the area, said three Taliban militants were killed in the airstrike in Hazrat Shah Bazaar area on Friday night.

On the other hand, the Taliban also confirmed the incident. The group’s spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid said three insurgents including a commander were killed in last night’s attack.

Three days back, 15 Taliban rebels were killed in a similar attack in Qarabagh district of Ghazni province.
