NATO air strike kills 10 militants in E. Afghanistan
font size    

A NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) air strike killed ten insurgents in Afghanistan's eastern Kunar province, a spokesman of the NATO forces in the province Major Shul said on Sunday.

"Acting on received intelligence, we carried out an air raid on an insurgent hideout in Dagarmol village of Watapoor district on Saturday, killing ten enemies belonging to an Arab fighter named Abu Ikhlas," the spokesman told a press conference.

The militants were attending a meeting when the air strike was carried out, he added.

Abu Ikhlas, according to Shul, was the commander of Arab fighters in the area.

Kunar and the neighboring provinces of Nooristan, Laghman and Nangarhar have been the scene of increasing insurgency over the past year.

More than 2,700 people, mostly Taliban militants, have been killed since the beginning of this year in this post-Taliban nation.
