The Afghan ministry of defense says a unit of the army’s commandos was stationed in Wardak, a province some 50 kilometers west of Kabul city, where Taliban insurgents carry out attacks on the security and defense forces as well as civilians.
The deployment of the commando unit in Wardak is aimed to prevent more Taliban attacks.
Fawad Aman, a spokesman of the defense ministry, said Friday that the commandos were stationed in the provincial capital of Maidan Shahr city and would be sent to the districts soon.
Meanwhile, Provincial Governor, Abdul Rahman Tareq, said that Taliban had recently decreased attacks, but clashes were still going on.
“The situation is under government control now,” he said.
