Two Taliban Killed while Planting Mine in Paktika
Afghanistan, Kabul, 1 December / corr Trend A. Hakimi / Two Taliban militants have been killed by their own explosive, while they were planting mine in Pakitika province.
Spokesman for Paktika governor, Hamidullah Zwak, told media that the incident took place in Hasti area of the Janikhil district.
He added that Taliban were planting mines on road side when the mine exploded and killed two of them.
Armed Taliban have not said anything in this concern.
Six Taliban insurgents were killed by aerial bombardment in the Mota Khan district of the same province, while they were planting mines on the road side, last week.
Taliban, recently, lost the ability to fight directly with government forces, that is why, they use blind mine to kill innocents, some sources urge.
