At least eight militants, affiliated to terror outfit Taliban, have been killed during a clash between the Afghan forces and the Taliban militants in Afghanistan's Heart province.
"Eight militants have been killed and seven others have been wounded during the clash in the vicinity of Shindand," Khaama Press reported, citing provincial governor's spokesman Jilani Farhad, as saying.
The clash broke out after a large number of Taliban militants wanted to launch coordinated attack on security posts in this district.
No comments have been received from the anti-government armed militant groups, including the Taliban militants in connection with the report by far.
This comes as the Taliban militants are attempting to carry out coordinated attacks across country as part of their spring offensive announced on Wednesday, according to the report.
