Security and defense officials say that nearly 100 Taliban fighters were killed in clashes with army and police during the past 24 hours in different areas.

The 209 Shaheen and 217 Pamir military corps based in the northern provinces of Balkh and Kunduz respectively, said Friday that the insurgents sustained casualties in the provinces of Balkh, Faryab, Jawzjan, Sar-e-Pul and Kunduz.

They said that Taliban launched mass attacks on the army outposts, but forced to retreat after suffering casualties in Balkh and Kunduz.

“Taliban fighters launched widespread attacks and offensive plans against the national defense and security forces in these provinces. But they were driven back,” the Shahin military corps said in a statement.
