KABUL, April 24 — Units of Afghan national army raided Taliban hideouts and killed eight insurgents, including two commanders in the southern Ghazni province on Thursday, an army spokesman Nazif Sultani said.

“Units of the national army launched cleanup operations in Andar district of Ghazni province early today morning and so far eight rebels, including two Taliban commanders, Mullah Mansoor and Azizullah, have been killed and five others injured,” Sultani told Xinhua, adding the elimination of the two commanders is a major setback to the Taliban militants in the southern region.

Andar has been regarded as the stronghold of Taliban militants in Ghazni province. Taliban militants have yet to make comment.

Meanwhile, Sultani said that the operations will continue till the district is cleaned up from the insurgents.
