Accidental blast kills 30 Taliban terrorists in Afghanistan

Kabul: At least 30 Taliban terrorists were killed in an accidental blast in Afghanistan’s Farah province, an official said on Friday.

Many terrorists were injured in the blast

The explosion took place in Pewa Pasaw area of Bala Buluk district on Thursday before the terrorists tried to attack government security forces’ positions, agencies quoted the official as saying.

“As soon as the terrorists were getting ready for the assault, the jacket of a would be suicide bomber detonated prematurely, setting off a handful of explosive,” he said.

Many terrorists were injured in the blast, the official said.

Taliban terrorists have been on the rampage since April when they launched an annual rebel offensive in Afghanistan, killing and injuring hundreds.

The province bordering Iran has been the scene of clashes between security forces and Taliban terrorists over the past years.

The Taliban terrorist group is yet to make comment.
