Gen. Sharif Yaftali, army chief of staff, says all strategic and government offices in Ghazni are still under government control.
He said on Sunday that fighting is still underway as the Taliban are hiding in residential areas and in civilian homes.
Yafteli pledged Ghazni would be cleared in a couple of days and the highway between Kabul and the city reopened.
Taliban claims of capturing parts of Ghazni, taking Afghan forces captive, couldn't be independently verified.
