BAGHLAN, Feb. 17 – Hireling troops once again tried to attack Mujahideen positions in Dand-e-Shahabuddin area of Pul-e-Khumri, the capital of Baghlan, from 3 axis last night.
Mujahideen engaged the enemy on all 3 fronts, triggering heavy clashes that lasted late night hours during which 3 APCs and a pickup truck were destroyed, 13 mostly special force troops were killed and 6 others wounded before the enemy was forced to flee the area.
All praise is due to Allah, only 2 Mujahideen were injured in the entire duration of fighting.
The enemy has been trying to take over Dand-e-Ghori and Dand-e-Shahabuddin areas of Baghlan by launching a large scale operation for the past 25 days however they have yet to make any headway while Mujahideen on the other hand have extended the fighting to other districts and taken cleared enemy from large areas.
The cowardly enemy is shelling and targeting civilian homes in the area with heavy weaponry after sustaining heavy losses.
